I had the day off today, so I decided to re-visit this trip to Michael, IL with Mark and his family.

Just reading through the whole post was a wonderful refresher of the fabulous time we IFG'ians all had. I relived the entire experience! Fireworks, indeed!

:D

Thanks to your post, CK, I just read through the whole thing and reminisced.
It sure was fun.

I thought everyone might find this interesting, from all of the storms we have been having here...

Remember this picture?

Here is how it looked a couple of days ago:

We've gotten a fair amount so now the soil is pretty soaked. Then when we get a few inches it doesn't take long for the creek to fill up and get like this.

So you can't get out till it subsides?

Correct, though it is usually only an hour or so and often less. Again, it depends on the rainfall but as you can see it can move a tremendous amount of water so when it stops coming down it clears up fairly quickly.

Wow! That's a sight I would have loved to see, Mark - the transformation of the mild stream to a raging torrent!

Review, review - such a 'funtastic' review - when can we hope to do this again this year, 2015 (before it becomes 2016)? :D

Any Takers? Remember the Cannon, Mortar and Muzzle Loaders? And seriously, extravagant fun?

:cheers:
