Flooding at Hononegah Forest Preserve

Today, quite a storm came through the area. In honor of Carbon Belch Day we decided to take a drive and look around.

Here is pictures of what we found at the local Forest Preserve (Hononegah Forest Preserve):






Looks fine so far...

As we enter the picnic area, things change.






Getting a little damp...

 






Where did the road go?

 








It's starting to look more like a swamp...

 



 


In another part of the picnic area:




Looking more like a boot launch than a road. Notice the road is just barely visible through the water?

 





The view further to the left. Notice the outhouses and the picnic tables under water?

 



Update: 6/13/2008 - My pictures have made the Weather page at WIFR.com. Check it out!

your phone does a good job it even got the fog. Did you send it off to any newspaper places yet. We are having another round right now. Sunny and raining all in one.

I also sent some of the pictures to WIFR (http://www.wifr.com/) and one to the Weather Channel (http://www.weather.com/). In both cases, the pictures must be "approved" before they will display them on their site.
