Never in my memory do I remember getting 15” of rain in 36 hours. This “little” creek is usually about 5’ wide and maybe 1 ‘ deep at best.
Above is from Yellow Creek near Freeport, about ten miles north of where we live. During spring rains this house may get some ponding but not quite like this. I’ll bet they have water in their basement as many do. Our son had a few inches and DH’s sister had 3 feet!
Alot of main and secondary roads are closed due to either water on the road or parts of the road being completely washed away.
Below, in my almost 50 years, I have never seen. This too is Yellow Creek and I have never seen water across Illinois Rte. 26 such as this
or like this. The water has encroached slightly before but never flooded the buildings and parking lot that I can remember. Logan’s is a popular area bar. I would guess about now the poor sap that maybe drank too much and didn’t drive (thankfully) his vehicle home on Friday night is wishing now that he would have not drank so much. just assuming…
However, we walked out of church last night to a stunning sunset!
For a few more flood pics, stop over and look at my friend, Joyce’s blog.
