Holy HELL!!!!

The rain has been nonstop all day yesterday, all night last night and even now.  My street is flooded.  My backyard is flooding.  My sump pump is running NONSTOP.  I am afraid my basement will flood.

I normally babysit on Thursdays for my niece and nephew.  My SIL couldn't make it to my house.  The roads are too flooded.

My DD's school district had to cancel since the flooding is too bad.  People can't get to out of their homes.  It's crazy.

SIL just texted... she cannot get back to her house!!!! :(

This is the back corner of my backyard:

 

Some more pictures from my neighborhood, late this afternoon:

^If you look in the distance in this one... towards that underwater park, you can see people riding a canoe through the park.  This is normally a huge, grassy field.

^That car parked on the street has water halfway up the doors.  It's submerged.

 Thanks.  The rain has stopped temporarily.  So at least some of the water is getting to drain...  Hopefully it can all go down before the next round of storms roll in.

 Thanks...  This is just CRAZY weather.  We have had SO MUCH rain lately.  It's so unbalanced though.  Then in the summertime we seem to get no rain from July through August and all our grass dies and we are watering the lawn all the time.  I wish this could be spread out rather than dumping on us for a month straight.

 Chicago suburbs...  My brother texted me a picture.  The INTERIOR of his car has an inch of water.  Parking lot of his apartment complex is totally under water.
