Heavy storms



For those out of the area, we got a dousing yesterday... I never heard of the Milwaukee Airport being closed due to runways being flooded; snow covered yes, flooded no. More info here
Wisconsin river is way up too; safe but islands are scarce and sand beach campsites are fleeting and far between.
Emily called me at midnight (she's in Shorewood); basement is flooded with a couple feet of water, she couldn't believe it! She took today off; Big clean up today!!

Powerful thunderstorms caused 7 1/2 inches of rain in Milwaukee, widespread flooding, closing down Milwaukee's airport and opening up a giant sink hole. The flooding may not necessarily be over. More info here
