Residual Flood Fun

Morgan lost his shoe in this giant "puddle" and I decided to jump in to find it. Here's the evidence of my endeavors :)

German Fest!!

Have I mentioned Milwaukee loves their festivals and they love their beer! Well and for that matter, their germans :) We went to German Fest today and experienced what the culture has to offer...i.e bratwurst, polka dancing, and beer in boots!!


Our Pabstastic escapade started last weekend when we visited the "Best Place" at the Old Pabst Brewery. The brewery closed it's doors in 1996 and has just recently reopened to give tours of the old facilities. An old town favorite of Milwaukee founded in 1884. This weekend we visited the Light Ideas gallery where they exhibited some of the old treasures they've discovered while excavating the basements of the old brewery...

Torrential Downpour....

"Powerful thunderstorms caused 7 1/2 inches of rain in Milwaukee, widespread flooding, closing down Milwaukee's airport and opening up a giant sink hole. The flooding may not necessarily be over."

Wow! I have never experienced such weather conditions as I did last night! I unfortunately can not take credit for the photos above because I was too busy trying not to be enveloped by water and I left the camera at home. I had to borrow these images from JS JOURNAL, but I chose the ones that pretty much depicted what I was seeing. I hope we never have to experience something like this again. Pretty scary!!
