I would like your help in finding my green cement alien… he is about 3 feet tall, seated in lotus position, with arms outstretched and hands together as if he is waiting to receive a gift. Unfortunately his gift was him leaving my front step at the hands of some miscreants. I desperately want him back. There’s a $50 reward for his return or information regarding his current location. I can’t imagine anyone could love him more than I do — you’ll see he is very cute in a couple of his costumes (Halloween and what he thought was appropriate while waiting to see an eclipse). He was last seen wearing winter clothing. Note: a great deal of paint is gone from his hands. Won’t you please help me find him? Share this information, forward, do whatever you can. I really want him back. Or if it was you, just return him, no questions asked and no prosecution.

By 5 pm, a broken line of storms will develop to the east of the Rockford area along that cold front and progress to the east across far Eastern Illinois and Northern Indiana into the evening and overnight hours where the greater threat for damaging winds, hail, and even an isolated tornado can’t be ruled out (pictured below). The threat for severe weather ending by around 6pm for the Rockford area.
Overall the severe threat this afternoon and evening should be
