It rained over 5 inches last night. Our backyard used to look like this.
Now it looks like this.
That stone slab marks the spot where our neighbors buried their dalmatian Veronica's ashes. The slab is knee high.
local foot bridge over the DuPage river is now an aqueduct. Every river in our area is flooding. It's a mess everywhere. A few blocks from here cars are still floating. Right now I feel very lucky that aside from our roof leaking in a few places, we made it through just fine.
