Water, Water Everywhere, Too Much for the Corn to Drink

It’s not as if McHenry County hasn’t gotten more than its fair share of rain this year, but southeastern Illinois has real flooding in the same area that was hit by the earthquake.

The rain in Decatur last weekend was so bad that the roof of the convention center room had pans to catch the leaks.

And, on Route 51 to Decatur low lying corn fields were flooded.

Fences usually indicate that there are fields.

In this one beside Route 14, though, you’d never know. It was next to a stream which had obviously overflowed.
