There is pretty bad flooding over here. The park I play baseball at is about 15 feet below the street with a small pond at the bottom. The pond is now a lake and was overflowing onto the street 15 feet above.

I pulled out the truck and tried to see if it could float. It got pretty stubborn at 2 feet of water.

I did that with my old Taurus one time.. car made it, headfirst mind you, all the way till the water was at the bottom of the door frame (hey I sped up to try to blow through it, oops misjudged how big it was) and the engine died. I pushed it out after taking off my socks, shoes, and rolling up my jeans, started it up she started just like normal, misfired a couple times, but she was good to go. Smoked a little at stop lights for about 20 minutes, but never did have any other problems with the car, until I totalled it. :lol:

FWIW That street is on a slight decline, and I wasnt even near 1/2 way into the water.

I talked to my parents (they are in Justice, IL) and they said they got it pretty bad last night. Got about 3-4 inches of water in the basement! Last I talked to my mom they were still out of power and phones.. but she was at the hospital since my dad had knee surgery this morning. Bad timing for them to have to clean this all up when he can't walk for a little while! :(
