Flood September 2008

We've had some serious rainfall this weekend, with flooding in all kinds of unexpected places. We personally got very lucky; even our window well that always floods stayed bone dry this time. But lots of roads, rivers and retention ponds weren't as lucky -- or were many of my friends. Good luck cleaning up, everyone!

That said, some people don't have the sense to heed warning signs.

There was a lot more of Lake Glenview than usual!

Couldn't even get to the bridge.

That gurgling triangle of white in the middle? Is a fountain. It is surrounded by benches, usually.

The waters came down on Sunday around the lake at least.

Techny Basin was filling up all day on Saturday.

Notice the trees weren't flooded yet, and the water was actually going down to a second level in the bowl. By Sunday, it was full.

This may not seem like much...but this is what Techny Basin looks the other 360+ days of the year.
