The Midwest is set to weather its worst storm in 70 years.

It’s being called the Great Lakes Cyclone, and Twitter users are calling it the Chiclone. It’s expected to hit the Chicago area this morning, with winds up to 55 miles per hour. Hurricane-force winds are possible as the storm crosses Lake Michigan. (See pictures of wacky winter weather.)

Chicago is expecting strong, straight-line winds, which will hit their peak — of course — during the morning rush hour. Midwesterners, we know you live in the Windy City, but maybe you ought to work from home today. (via CBS Chicago)
