If you were outside yesterday or today, you know it's windy out there. The evidence of the blustery days is all around us: stray garbage cans, leaves blowing into building lobbies every time a door is opened, and flowers on my balcony...that aren't mine!
Walking around the city today, I noticed the winds weren't keeping folks inside. State St. was as busy as normal as was the rest of the city. Getting closer to home I spotted a building in the 1500 block of S. Michigan Ave., that had been boarded up for years, was damaged by the strong winds. The front window was smashed in, breaking the glass and twisting the metal framing. Check out the pictures and video below to see the damage.
