Home Newsroom 198. VIDEO: Property Owners Clean Up after Damaging Storms Hit the Village of Barrington

Hundreds of Barrington Village homes and businesses lost power due to strong storms that passed through the area early Monday morning. Property owners and public works crews spent the day cleaning up after powerful winds downed trees and damaged homes and cars throughout the Village and there are more storms in the forecast for this week.

High winds even tore part of the the roof off, causing flooding at the Village’s public works building on Raymond where emergency repairs were underway throughout the day

365Barrington filmer and producer Gus Goetze set out to survey the damage and spoke to one resident who says this morning’s storms were a close call, causing quite a scare and a major mess surrounding their Raymond Avenue home.

Giant trees spit and fell, nearly missing homes throughout the village, including one tree that came dangerously close to crushing the facade of Barrington Bank and Trust on Route 59, causing a road closure along Lake Street for most of the day.  Fallen trees and branches were spotted throughout town.

Chicago news crews traveled to Barrington for their storm coverage today to interview residents about the damage.  For the latest updates on weather warnings, street closures and storm damage throughout the Barrington area, click here to visit the Village of Barrington’s Facebook page.

Hi guys! Today we'll be checking out some star-crossed lovers! 💔

No, **not** Romeo and Juliet! I mean first of all, the story of 牛郎织女 -- niú láng zhī nv -- dates back to at least the Jin Dynasty -- 250-420 AD 😱. Take that, Shakespeare! Also, Romeo and Juliet may be tragically "star-crossed," but, as the story goes, Niu Lang and Zhi Nu literally *are* stars -- on opposite ends of the Milky Way 😦.

Let's rewind. Zhi Nu is the youngest daughter of the Queen Mother of the West and the Jade Emperor (Hey -- we know who those people are! 😁).

Meanwhile, Niu Lang was a poor. sad, unloved cowherd. As many versions of the story go, though, the cow was magical -- which is never a bad thing 😂. The cow led Niu Lang to steal the clothes of a girl bathing with her sisters in a river.

As questionable as a method as that may seem, it worked! Zhi Nu and Niu Lang were married and had children ❤️.

But there's always a but. And this story's "but" is that the Queen Mother was not happy with this union. Niu Lang had a magical coat (that's another story), and when the Queen Mother tried to separate them, he flew up to try to join Zhi Nu in the heavens.

Unfortunately, the Queen Mother wasn't having it, and she separated the two with a river in the sky, only allowing them to meet on the 7th day of the 7th month of the lunar calendar -- "Chinese Valentine's Day."
