Anyone Have A Large Boat For Sale?

Rantoul, IL.

60 deg. partly sunny, NW wind @ 7 mph.

Forecast = Partly cloudy. High around 75F. Winds N at 10 to 20 mph.

Anyone have a large boat for sale? If this weather keeps on like it is, we're going to be needing it!!!!

If you've been following the news, you may already know that parts of Illinois have had some very unusual weather.  When we arrived, it was soggy enough that Louise was unsure if Jim could  get Nora into this site by pulling around from the rear across the grass. Well, we made it without any problems, but in the last week, we've had all kinds of additional rain and then on Wednesday night we had an inch that came down like someone was dumping buckets of water on the CG.

With the ground already soaked, Friday, we had a downpour that lasted for much of the morning and almost all of the afternoon. That, added another 3.6 inches to the amount and left us with water standing everywhere!!!

That's at least 6 inches of water down at the end of the road that we're on, and yes, those are RV sites at the end of the road. It's a good thing no one was in those sites right now. (click on the photo to enlarge it if you'd like to)

I really don't know how they'll be getting any of the RVs in or out of the sites without getting stuck or at least making a mess of the site. Friday afternoon, I know that quite a few RVs were turned away from the park, and with all this rain, it'll take quite a few days to dry out.

Nothing much been happening here. With the weather being nasty almost every day, Jim hasn't been able to get much done outside. In fact, except for going to Walgreen's one day and going out to eat at the Steak N Shake one evening, they haven't gone anyplace either.

Did you know that on this date in 1955, the state of Illinois enacted the first automobile seat belt legislation?
