You might have read about the rainstorms and flooding all over Chicagoland this morning. In fact, the school where I’m completing my practicum closed today for its first ever “Rain Day.” The photos above were sent out by the district superintendent. He actually came to school, because where he lives the flooding wasn’t bad, saw the situation, and called off school for the day.

Chicago has been hit hard. I’ve lived here just four years, but this was the worst I’ve seen it in the northern suburbs. Wish us luck as we try to dry out and get things back in order!
