I made a loop from Algonquin to Dundee and back to Algonquin this afternoon.
The Fox River was pouring over the dam in Algonquin.
The sluice gates of the dam are still wide open, but one can see that the water is closer to them than it was on Sunday.
The water seems to be about a foot below the footbridge in Cornish Park.
Using the long lens, it seems that sandbags protecting the home on LaFox River Drive that Governor Bruce Rauner visited are working.
Heading through West Dundee about two hours later, I saw this parking lot.
Behind Bleuroot is a little plaza where State Senator Karen McConnaughay announced her candidacy.
Driving along that part of the road west of the Fox River, where it is open.
The street just south of the West Dundee village boundary was closed.
A boy was fishing in Carpentersville.
A factory building has been sandblasted across the Fox River.
Next stop was the dam in Carpentersville.
I thought the flow of water rushing over the dam in Carpentersville was more interesting that that flowing over the Algonquin Dam.
The smoothness of the Fox River above the dam contrasts with the roiling water below.
An old tire was not the only thing floating below the Carpenter Dam.
On to Algonquin.
Sandbags were containing the Fox River in backyards on LaFox River Drive in Algonquin.
Three TV vans were parked on LaFox River Drive where Governor Rauner views the river Sunday afternoon.
The home on LaFox River Drive seen from the east side of the Algonquin Day (above) is seen below with sandbags holding.
The water did not seem as high on Tuesday afternoon as it was in 2013.
Water, for example was in the driveway across LaFox River Drive from the Cornish Park bathroom four years ago.
This afternoon the asphalt was dry.
Here is the flood gage readings at the bridge in the photo of the mainly unflooded yard above:
