    Im in Schaumburg IL and the rain has been nearly nonstop. So far we have 8"s fallen. I took these pics recently, the water levels have actually fallen alot, this morning the water had shut down some major roads. Anyway, here is a ton of pics. There are a bunch from my subdivision where we are about 60% under water!

    I live in a condo on the 2nd level so it will take alot of rain before I need to worry but no one SO FAR has water in thier house. Hopefully it stays that way. The rain has stopped for a bit so things will recede a bit before the rain starts back up again.

    Nothing more then a few puddles here in Woodstock.
    My dad is on the skokie fire department and he said he had water over the headlights on the ICV (instant comand vehicle) for the fire department. The ICV is a psd E350 that has been converted to 4x4 with a sfa. The headlights are about 3.5ft off the ground at least.
