Water is always high this time of year, but add 5" of rain, and the fun begins...







^^^Ironically, this is on River Road. :eek:




I'm one of the lucky ones...so far. I only had a comparatively minor amount of water come in the basement.

I always found Gene and Judes to be overrated anyway, so no big loss. Good but not great.

No boo necessary. They actually are letting the Chicago River flow into Lake Michigan to ease the pressure. The Lake was way down anyway.

Thread title says "without the fun", first post says "and the fun begins". Make up your mother fucking mind.
Many unforeseen events transpired between the writing of the title and the body of the post...hat of ass.

Chicago is one step closer to becoming the old school pirate cove that I've always wished for.
