Looks like the weathermen go this one right. The view outside my home office is just all sorts of blurry right now, so I had to take this shot outside. Right now, the city is holding a press conference regarding the storm that you can view on NBC Chicago live. Traffic is at a standstill. the worst of the snow will come around 9 p.m., with those promised 50 MPH gusts coming around that time, as well. Chicago Public Schools and city colleges of Chicago will be closed tomorrow.

The Tribune's Chicago Weather Center page is set up for up-to-date news regarding the storm.
