""There's ultimately really no difference in the amount of water passing through," said Steve Mayberry, district spokesman."

Isn't that one of the Toddler's spokespeople? Makes him very credible. Not.

I saw that area on Sunday early afternoon. It was the rain. The river behind the dam downstream had inches before it would start piling up and possible over the Willow Road bridge.

I lived in northfield for almost my entire life, iv never EVER scene the roads as flooded as they were this weekend, my old house which had never flooded in my 21 year history in northfield, flooded. I Do not know who to blame all i know is the Northfield police were completely useless, in glenview the roads that flooded out were promptly blocked, in northfield the cop stood on the side of the road, then got back in his car and drove away from the flooded road leaving people trying to get through all by their lonesome.

OMG I thought police were heroes!! Or at least champion donut eaters and coffee drinkers. Credit where credit is due.
