Check out the winds currently at O'Hare today

KORD 192051Z 25036G54KT 10SM OVC044 12/03 A2955 RMK AO2 PK WND 25054/2046 SLP007 T01220033 53030

Here in MKE have some pretty strong winds too. My office on the 12 floor of the building I'm in has been so loud today from winds whipping against it

We had a gust of 62KT (70 mph) here at GRR on Friday... They said it was the 3rd highest recorded gust ever... I lost a bunch of ridge vent shingles off my house as a result of the high winds....   
Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.

Yes, and a number of flights at other stations were peripherally affected, due to planes/crews being out of place.
