crooks The white and red hoe legit floats. Looks like he is dredging and loading that barge behind him and the other long stick hoe is loading it out. I assume into trucks?


Have you seen the excavator that works completely under water?

Start at 2min

Yaj Yak does it actually float or just sit on the bottom? or like barely float?

as i posted above, the area has gotten 400% of the average rainfall for the past month... four. hundred. percent.

crystal lake in the one map for the last month has 15-18 inches of rain

that's interesting.

link to any of that?

i really still think that the flooding is due to the extreme rain events we've had... solely. we've gotten amounts of rain in single storms that we typically don't see in a week or two and especially north of here.

i do enjoy all these facebook conspiracy theorists though who really think that there is someone out there actually trying to fuck the chain by letting it flood frequently

if you need help though hit me up.


i was reading/thinking about this more last night. and so i wanted to look at my guess that it's more just these clusterfuck storms we see- so i think it really is primarily. this is all for antioch which is a very tiny portion of the fox chain watershed- but at the same time, kinda dead nuts of it.

may 2018- 6.25 inches of rain - avg is 3.94.
june 2018- 6.69 inches of rain - avg is 3.63.
july 2018- 1.04 inch of rain - avg is 3.63
aug 2018- 4.5 inches of rain - avg is 4
sept 2018 - 4.3 inches of rain - avg is 3.4
oct 2018 - 4.9 inches of rain - avg is 2.9

we had closures in may, june, and october, best i can tell... also the same time we had a significant amount more of rain.

could the dam/lock in mchenry "not be finished?" sure. Could it be completely fucking the system? I highly doubt it. Could it be a small portion?

yep.

moreover... these extraordinary weather events are raping the chain hard. that's for sure.

zenriddles I drove over the Wabash last week and got .8 mile on the odometer from bank to bank. Those were some damp farms.
Felt like driving on Alligator Alley in Florida.
05-10-2019 06:24 AM
Yaj Yak yeah. the whole US seems to be quite mega-fucked with water currently.

no bueno.

J-LO no offical reading from me, but the rock, fox, and mississippi all look realy high to me from the seat of my car, think bridge clearance will be at a minimum for a while

Chester Copperpot I was just thinking that. With Naperville being flooded, I can't believe the Fox/Chain isn't higher than it is.

Yaj Yak every waterway in the area is high as fuck currently roads are shut down south and east. it's amazing the chain stayed as low as it did as long as it has
05-03-2019 10:15 AM
Yaj Yak ok

You would care if you lived or boated on the lower. The weather is for sure putting off the start of the season for most. But good chance other zones will also have restricted boating if this rain continues.

Yaj Yak 3-5 in a week is whatever. 3-5 over night is the issue.

or when burlington gets 10 inches in two days.
04-29-2019 12:39 PM
Yaj Yak it's fine.

PANDA National Weather Service predicted 3-5 inches of rain this week. Hopefully the lakes are at a level where they can "store" a ton of water and minimize flooding.
