Lake Beulah, WI

Where I am right now. It's so flooded here. Every time we drive past a farm that's flooded, I think of how horrible these people have it. Their whole crop just looks ruined.

Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't realize you owned the whole north!

Heh. Megan and I are attending her bi-annual paternal family reunion.

Yeah we went through your godforsaken city on Friday, when 94 was just plain stopped due to a huge wreck.

Seems to be a sypmtom of a larger problem, I guess. All I know is that our 11-hour drive took 15 hours (we also got a bit lost in WI, so it wasn't all due to the wreck). If I had heard about it, though, I would've taken 294 instead.

That's a pretty out-of-the-way place you're in. Or at least it used to be. I lived in the Milwaukee area for a long time. My wife is from Oconomowoc and her brother lives somewhere around Pewaukee. I used to have a friend who played sandlot baseball (a very serious subject in southern Wisconsin) and Genesee had a team, so we'd drive out there once a year for a game. No freeway out that way in those days.

Yeah, it's too bad about the flooding. For most crops, they don't get a second chance, because a mid-summer planting doesn't mature before the weather turns. So something like this is often just a lost season.

I can imagine it used to be. We came in on I-94 and took Hwy 83 south til we had to use the county roads to get to the house. It's a rather beautiful region, despite the overabundance of water.

It is (and it's not usually flooded). Do you get down to Lake Geneva? It's actually more Chicago people than Milwaukee people who go there, and I've only been there a couple of times, but it's a very pretty place. If Yerkes Observatory gives tours, it's definitely worth seeing.

I think we're planning to go there one day. They already had one family reunion at Lake Geneva (before I met Megan).

Lake Geneva was a Chicago mafia hangout. If the heat was on, they'd bide their time there. Capone went there often, and I think he had a place on the lake.

Awesome. I should check into that.
