We had an eventful trip home yesterday from our cabin in Northern Wisconsin. Areas near us received over 11 inches of rain in 1 day, with lots of rain the day before as well. Roads are all washed out and travel is near impossible. We ended up driving about an hour south in order to head west then back north again. There was one stretch of road where we drove through about 12-15 inches of water covering the road for about a half mile. I was not concerned about the road washing out as it was just a low spot where the swamps overflowed covering the road.
Hot one here today with heat index going up over 100 expected. I'll be out in the morning but plan to be in the AC during the heat of the day. Got company coming in 2 weeks and my petro room could use some straightening up and cleaning.
We had a nice road trip last week in southern Illinois and across the Ohio River to Paducah. Here is a pic of me at a mural painted on the Paducah flood wall with panels depicting the history of the area spread over several blocks.
