The storm that started at 2:30 in Crystal Lake on Friday night was still coming down as we arrived at the DeKalb YMCA Saturday morning at 7:30 for the North Central Illinois Swim Conference.
Originally designed for tennis courts, it has been converted into basketball courts or, alternatively, a floor hockey rink, surrounded by a track.
Saturday, it looked like where refugees from a natural disaster would retreat.
Since it was inside, I guess we should be thankful for that favor.
Next time this location hosts an swim meet, perhaps they will lay out parts of the building for each team.
