Heard from a friend that B&B Coal in Joliett has been flooded out the past week. They have been pumping water and from what he said they have not moved the level from the active area much at all. This must be a costly venture plus having to run the fans on top of that with zero production!! I think they are powered off genterators not city power ($4.00/gallon for fuel). Hope they get back at it soon.

I don't know how it'll affect yoons up there, but I know we don't need it here.
Hope everything holds out OK.
