"Water, Water, Everywhere...."
Here in Southeastern Wisconsin, we've been pummeled by continuous rainstorms all week. Flooding has been a major issue around here, especially with sewage overflows into Lake Michigan. We've gotten so much rain recently that the Milwaukee Metro Sewer District just can't manage it all. They've had to close their waste water intake until they can catch up. Even the city's deep tunnel is full to capacity.
Directly south of us in Racine County, they've had to contend with the overflowing Fox River which continues to rise past floodstage. Flooding is usually a normal thing down there, but, it's been quite some time since the water has reached these levels. With more rain still on the way, how much worse it'll get yet is anyone's guess.
I'm just hoping this coming week sees more sunshine. We could definitely use the time to catch up and dry out from these powerful storms. Rain is good. I'm sure the Wisconsin farmers are appreciating it, but that's still a lot of water!
