You might be right LD, that river is predicted to crest pretty high.

We are dodging a major flood here on the Milwaukee River, but not by much. Canoeing out to the road is getting a little old however . The rains here overnight seemed to hold down south of I-94, and really hit Illinois hard.

 

Stay safe !

Marlboro 180 That is a good Graphic! I had almost forgot about those! I used to have one bookmarked and reffered to it constantly when I lived in Colfax on the South Skunk River. Then we lost our house in  Aug. 2010 to a flood(I was on the other side of an 18 ft Dike) and moved to higher ground.. Now I'm 8 miles from a river and 60 ft above the nearest waterway.  Anyone living around a River can likely find these graphs for rivers near them.

Lowell That and worse are what the pictures look like between Us. There are a lot of roads as near as 20 mile south of Des Moines(Lucas) and SE of here with water over them.

Indeed JD, I forgot to add the link for those graphics/ hydrographs. Sorry you lost your home to flood, must have been a difficult time for sure.

 

http://water.weather.gov/ahps/

 

That will bring one to the main overview of the US, then zoom into the area you want to look at.

Yes it is difficult to see everything you have worked for in 60 yrs under 6 ft of water. I'm just now getting to the place I can go back and not feel sick. Togh Times, but it resulted in our getting the place we had dreamed of having all our lives. Which makes things much easier.

Our farm is the wettest it has ever been! everything is flooded, rivers are all overflowed, we lost one road so far that washed out on the way to the farm. I bet It will be month before we get a chance to mow.

The North Branch of the Kish flows south from Wisc. The South Branch starts by me and flows north. When they meet, they flow west and join the Rock River by Rockford. The Kishwaukee River is one of the few rivers in the world that flow from south to north. Which is probably what is causing the jam up!!!

yeah the DesPlaines is crazy down here by Joliet  I am surprised the Kankakee whicjh is real close to me, isn't worse... I have never seen the DesPlaines that high ever but I have seen the Kankakee higher before

Just have it snow, it will keep those levels down to a manageable mark. It's working here, another inch on the ground this morning.

1 inch of rain is about 8-10 inches of snow.

I don't think lilysdad wants 60 inches of snow. For that matter, I don't think anyone does.
