It really wasn't too bad (it was still bad enough), took 3.5 hours to drive what normally takes 1.25 hrs (In a Semi with a flatbed carrying steel
"slinky" coils) The problem is, the people on the road who know better but still try to sail across the ponds, My big rig can make it through, but
the whole road is shut down because 4 wheelers can't.
The flood tunnel seems to have made things worse. I moved out of my apartment because it kept flooding, never used to flood, untill they got grants
for the giant tunnel and for some reason they installed plugs in the sewers, if the water gets too high, they stop water from going down the sewer,
well, on the south side because of Lake Michigan's water table or water level, they raised the streets for the sewers, when it rains and the plugs
activate, the water pours down into our yards and into our basements, in my case my apartment, had plans of building a cinderblock wall this week end,
(only need about 2 feet height) might spend it drying out the apartment instead.
