THE 25th ANNIVERSARY of the Great Chicago Loop Flood!

Almost forgot to mark this occasion with a quick post. Some links that mark this significant historic event and finally a video.
Finally from this day in 2012 Chicago's CBS affiliate marked this day and here's a YouTube video of their story. [VIDEO]
I was in grade school at the time and I don't remember much about that day. My mother worked in downtown Chicago and I can't even say if she came home early. Although I do remember they brought home a sponge marking this event. One that was flat and dry until hydrated and it expanded. Cool stuff for a middle schooler at the time.
