There were 4 1/2 inches of rain in Crystal Lake on Thursday and Friday.
That’s what a rain gauge on Woodland Drive read.
The former marsh behind the baseball field at the Park District’s Main Beach was flooded pretty much to capacity.
The triangle park next to Dole Avenue was also flooded.
And the rain was so heavy that Joseph’s Market in the Crystal Lake Plaza was forced to close.
One Plaza merchant said that the roof had collapsed, although there was no sign of damage from the parking lot.
I hope no one was hurt and Joseph’s Market is able to reopen soon.
The best grocery store in our area by far!
