In 1959 Mayor Daley (the first) set off the air raid / civil defense sirens when the White Sox won the pennant. They hadn't been heard from again until 2006 when I noted it in this post.
A couple nights ago in the big storm my friend Elton (whom I am always workin' on for joining the blog, but it hasn't happened yet) took these great photos of lightning striking near the Trump Tower (or in the lake behind the tower), as the sirens roared yet again. He stood out in the rain to get these shots so he is a true professional. No tornadoes struck us, but the wind really was roaring, and the lightning put on a fantastic show.
