Floods


On Saturday, September 13, we had almost 6.7 inches of rain.  The total for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday was over ten inches in some places in Chicago.  The 6.7 inches in one day was the most ever recorded in Chicago, and we were here for it!  Isn't that special?  I have never used an umbrella as much as I have here!  The umbrella, by the way, is an excellent invention. 

For all you FCC youth group members and leaders, this video is taken from the bridge over the little river that we had to walk over to get to North Park's campus during our summer trips.  It is not the bridge that we walked over to get to the showers, but this is the same river.   This little river has flooded many Chicago neighborhoods over the last few days.

Luke ran up to the river when we made this video and then immediately turned around and said, "All this water makes me really have to go to the bathroom!"  Ha-ha.

Hey guys!

We enjoy seeing and reading new blogs! Addi really enjoyed the video and wants to say hi to Emily, Elise, and Luke. The picture is great! Luke having to go to the bathroom and making sure to show that during the picture is classic!

I love that picture of your kids! I am going to print that one off. You got rain and we lost our electricity for 2 1/2 days. Crazy times in our new cities! Love Becky
