    Heyyyy I live in Joliet!

    The east side is crap but the west side is pretty nice. The cathedral area specifically. Plus then you don't have to deal with the Cook County taxes.

    Ah, my bad for misinterpreting then...
    GBATemp staff can put as much as they want to, but I do think they wanna keep the amount reasonable.

    There are many other reasons for me not to recommend Joliet...yes you are right the west side is nice HOWEVER...Joliet still gets some tornadoes especially compared to Lake, DuPage, and northern Cook. And about the tax part....that's why I recommend DuPage over Cook.So I wouldn't recommend Joliet or Will. Not being mean. So I'm sorry.

    You know where doesnt get tornadoes, or really bad? Washington, not to be confused with the clone Washington DC, but Washington. You get clouds, rain, sun,
    what else could you want? Ive been here all my life and there has never any tornadoes or earthquakes.

    I don't know when you used to pay it, but the prices of houses skyrocket with the 2008 crash. You could always try to live in Québec :^) . No tornado, no typhoon, almost no earthquake (the worst we had was alike to a train goes near our house for like 5 seconds), but then again there's winter :P

    I'll try to see if I can fork out some cash. I can't promise anything though, since university is right around the corner, and I need a new computer for it.

    I'm not mad, haha. I was actually a little surprised to see it brought up. As for the tornadoes, they're generally not too bad. One messed up Western Ave. but that was years ago.

    However if you live anywhere in Illinois you gotta deal with our corrupt government and barely passable budget.

    I hope you're still doing fine Chary! The Houston Food Bank made us work hard today. Haha I love it there were at least 100 volunteers there perhaps more!

    @Chary The rain hit this morning, I was able to go home early before the rain hit us because I have to walk. But don't worry, I gave that storm a glare!
    Unfortunately I won't be able to donate this week because money is tight. Hopefully next week I end up with some extra cash.
    Also how you holding up?

    I'm good now. A friend from my mom's work is loaning us a car to get around in. I've just been house hunting the past day, with not much luck. Someone will also be fostering my cats until I have an actual house to live in.

    OMG! You should have mentioned before that you have cats and adorable ones too! I am glad to see everyone is doing well and made it out ok. You may want to head a bit further North in your state, chances might be higher that you will find more places to live the further you get from anywhere damaged by the storm.

    @Chary some of the remnants of the hurricane came through a couple days ago. I glared at it really hard and might've gotten carried away and made a couple "lovely" hand gestures to it...
