I have no problem admitting that I would likely have DNS'ed or DNF'ed (preferably the former) if I had walked out the door today in Minneapolis/St. Paul or Milwaukee or Chicago and been met with the conditions that were reported at the start of those races.
Regarding the Chicago stats, I have seen reports that the race officials did indeed direct people off of the course to head back to the finish line and they crossed the finish line going the wrong way, where they would have registered a split via the chip mats.
