Ike dumped on us! We got about 9in of rain since Thursday night. The Fox and the Illinois are at record levels in 25 years. Our basement is drying out but the rivers are still rising. We took pics tonight so you could see what is going on. They placed trains full of sand on the train bridges trying to keep them in place. If they go then we will have a huge problem. It will take out the only open road over the river. While I don't think the river will get high enough to be at my front door, I ask that you pleas pray for my neighbors. The river is expected to rise through the night and crest tomorrow. Hopefully the sandbags hold.
2 blocks NE. This is the back road into my neighborhood. The road I take to work! Cole enjoyed watching the fish swim by on the road.
