[quote:Anonymous Coward 1300831:MV8yMDg5MTg5XzM1MTgxMDM1XzkwMjdGQkM4] I am in the quad cities area stranded right now. I live in a small town called Bishop Hill and I am stuck in Annawan at a gas station. Every route home is blocked either with a jack knifed truck, drifts in the middle of the road up to my waist, or littered with wrecked cars. At least I have an excuse to call off work on 12/21/12. I just hope I make it home before noon. The time now is 4:18am and I pulled in here at 10pm last night, after getting off work at 7pm on 12/20. [/quote]
Wind gusts and precipitation brought down power lines and left thousands without power throughout Illinois in the season's first winter storm.
More than 30,000 people are without power in northern Illinois as of 8 p.m., according to Arlana Johnson, a spokeswoman for Commonwealth Edison.
The western suburbs were the hardest hit, with more than 27,000 people without power, Johnson said.
ComEd prepared for power outages and significant damage to its system, putting out additional crews and equipment and by asking other utilities to be at the ready to assist.
The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for the area until 3 a.m. Friday.
