Stormy time in Sylvania

BY KELLY McLENDON

The Midwest is certainly feeling the effects of Hurricane Sandy. In Sylvania right now, it's a chilly 38 degrees and ice lined my windshield when I got in my car this morning.

While that's nothing compared to what happened on the East Coast, there have been many predictions about how bad this area is going to be hit.
