Storm signals

Some snarly weather passed over my house several times over the past few days. I live near the Fox River in northern Illinois, which is still swollen from recent rains. Reports indicate that is has reached its peak in my neck of the woods. The Fox is still well above flood stage, but is receding. The abundance of water will soon make its way to the Illinois River and eventually to the Mississippi River, adding to its already burgeoning overflow.
