The Ear Worm of the Day is brought to you by the weather in Chicago:


Nearly 90,000 thunderbolts had hit northern Illinois, according to the National Lightning Detection Network. At the storms' peak, it was firing off more than 800 bolts per minute; and that only counts those that hit the ground.

"There was no precedent for this," said WGN meteorologist Tom Skilling. "In every way imaginable, that storm last night was in its own league."
I just happened to be downtown when the worst of it hit. In the 19 years I've lived and worked in Chicago, it's the first time I've ever heard the tornado sirens go off. I've gotta tell you, folks -- it was freaky, freaky weather.
