Oh yeah- flooding everywhere in northern IL. Rock River out of its banks, Mississippi River near flood stage at Dubuque (lock 11) and Bellevue (lock 12). It's out of the banks farther south near Quincy, IL. We registered over 14 inches of rain so far for the month of August, which is a record. One night we had 7.85 inches (registered at Rockford airport) in a 3 1/2 hour period.
Much needed sun the last two days, but more rain for Tuesday-Wednesday. River boating is done for a while.....
