Ike Comes to Town

Isn’t about the only advantage to living in Illinois is we never get hit by hurricanes? Well, Gustav’s rains soaked us last week and now Ike’s headed here too.
A frontal boundary will bring periods of rain and thunderstorms to the area, delivering two to four inches of rain on the area through Sunday morning. Then, remnants of Hurricane Ike will track along the boundary, bringing the threat of additional rainfall – up to another two to four inches – later that day and into the overnight hours.

Tourism in general may be down here, but the remnants of hurricanes seem to like to visit.

Update: It looks like Ike's gas price increases have already hit town with gas jumping up to around $3.99/gal as of midday.
