The Rockford Park District in Illinois is proud to announce their Winter Flurry initiative, which provides a variety of programs, activities, and facilities to experience winter in new and exciting ways.
This was one of those moments where it wasn't the time of year for a snowfall, but the weather in Illinois said "Hold my beer". A farmer in Illinois shared video of his harvest of soybeans during a snowstorm.
