Chuck, that was the same thing I was thinking. Des Plaines in Gurnee has gone up over 4 feet in 12 hours. Most of the heavy stuff has been south of us in Pell Lake. With the aftermath of Ike making its way up here this week sometime, not looking good at all.

Looking at the radar this am, looks like the really heavy stuff might barely miss us to the south, but too close to call at this point. :(

Thanks for the help sandbagging Bo Duke, mad quick work of it this year. It also helps to be a bit more prepaired.

Pat the radar is not looking so promising now, they are playing it safe, and just forcasting heavy rains:)st

Chuck - if you ever need an extra hand sandbagging, I'd be glad to help out if I'm not dealing with the media in Gurnee.

Yeah, I haven't been back to Boy Scout Island in a few years, there has been a big sandbar right accross from the Germania G,C. and the water is only 2-3 feet deep there at least in the last 3 or 4 years................. That used to be the perfect drag strip, no matter what the water is dead calm back there................ great place to hang and drink beer also!!!!!!

IT WAS ABOUT 1 AND A 1/2 TO 2 FEET IN HIS HOUSE, AGAIN, AND THAT WAS LAST NIGHT BEFOR IT CAME UP. IF YOU FIND THOSE PRINT'S FOR THE ARC LET US KNOW.

The Newest Thing Is To Put The House 15 Feet In The Air. Then You Dont Need Flood Insurance. But The First Step Is A Bitch. I'll Try To Get A Picture Next Time I Go Up. The House Is In The Air With The Frount Door Still In It Looks To Funny To Pass Up. But They Didn't Get Any Water This Time.

Well....we seem to have dodged a bullet, water has crested, and is going down. If there was any more rain it would have been disasterous. Still not out of the woods yet lots of run off, still coming down the valley.

We only got around 5 inches of rain here. Just enough to over flow the waste water treatment plants. I dont remember the exact amount of semi treated waste water they dumped in the big creek but it was ALOT. Semi treated here means they screen out the bullets, needles and rubbers. The rest should be flowing by Rat and Cowboys houses rite about now. There is an old saying around here, "When it rains in Sagnasty, Shit happens in Bay City". :)hand
