I used to live up there (McHenry), if it counts. Worked for Motorola for 15 years, got laid off, and went into field service. I drive around all day and fix stuff. If it's in or around a bank and electronic, I fix it. After getting totally fed up with the winters in Daleyland, I transferred to the mountains. 17 years of that crap was enough. I think we had like 2" of snow here last winter.
