The Skydeck at the Willis Sears Tower is the only attraction anywhere that I know of that can write “elevator ride” into its admission price. And make you so damn grateful that it’s included.

Wait, it gets better. For an extra $21, you can skip straight to the elevators. Better—you get VIP access to the elevators.

Tornadoes passed. Still no power. We lost 1.5 trees. One broke completely through the trunk at the base. None fell on the house & everything else is okay.

I’m sure official reports will come out tomorrow, but just based on NWS and TWC sites & tweets, we were in the direct path of the worst part of the storm.

105 mph winds reported officially about a mile west of here.

But also I guess there are trees blocking all of the streets near me and ugh it’s gonna suck trying to get to work tomorrow. And of course, I’m the only one who lives on the south side.

The John Hancock Center in Chicago has a truly breathtaking new attraction called Tilt. It’s glass enclosure located on the building’s 94th floor that holds eight people and tilts them forward, so that they lean out and take in a truly unique and adrenaline-packed view of the Windy City from over 1000 feet above the ground.

Click here for a thrilling/nerve-racking video demonstration.

Yikes. 

Willis Tower Ledge has closed after a report of cracking glass. Check it out here.

Everyone be freaking out but no one be reading the article.

What cracked was the protective surface above the glass that keeps the glass from getting all scratched up. This surface gets damaged sometimes because of sharp objects and because people walk on it all day. It needs to be replaced periodically and it’s not closed because of cracking in the glass it’s closed to inspect that the cracks in the additional protective surface didn’t damage anything underneath.
