Six inches above flood stage

Today river water levels in Chicago are back to normal– they peaked Friday night.  In some places there was an inch or two of water over the roads, and everyone had to get through single file. This is what they looked like on Saturday on the way to work, with rivers levels cresting six inches above flood stage.  Torrence Avenue south of 106th is still a bit wet, but drying out.  Two lanes are open.  Wolf Lake is not all that wet, even if the entrance has water over the road. The ground may be  spongy, but the picnic tables are still above water lever. The stupid, idiotic, ever-pooping geese are happy.
