Default Look out below!

We got the southen end of the Galena/Dubuque storm and could not leave the house until 10:15 a.m. due to thunder, lightning and heavy rain. Could not even see the river but noticed that the Twilight was out when we looked at her landing on our way to the QC.

Today we have no landing, no beach and the bottom two steps of the 45 are under water. More is heading your way.
