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?
