The Morton Grove Metra commuter rail station during a severe thunderstorm. Morton Grove Illinois USA. Friday, June 19th 2009.
I took this photo during My lunchbreak on Friday, June 19th 2009 around 10:30 AM.
On this date, the entire Chicagoland area was under a severe thunderstorm watch until 3:00 PM that day. A freak storm system with torrential rainstorms and hail wreaked havoc upon Chicago, creating flooded streets and basements everywhere.
The storm system began acting up in Morton Grove at about 10: 15 AM. I took this photo looking north under the station platform canopy during a torrential downpour.
