I guess that sure have a lot of experience with this happening every year.  I hope it is lower than the predictions.

Gosh Chris, if the river gets that high, will water be in your home??  I sure hope not......  I hate to say this, but all this preparing n flooding every year sure would make me want to move to higher ground......you guys ever think about that??  

Listening to the news onthe way home today, the Des Plaines river in chicago area has risen n risen n is flooding again.  One homeowner said he's done n is moving.  Sure don't blame him.

That doesn't sound good.  I hope it won't be as bad as they think.
