Not quite to this degree I don't think.

There was a LOT of snowfall this year. Severe flooding is to be expected. I'm surprised RI didn't go under again.

I lived in the Quad Cities, Iowa on the part of the Mississippi that flows East to West. It got bitchy every year and flooded two out of three. But from what I'm hearing now it has gone beyond being a little pissy to nearly FEMA intervention enraged. Last time we got a lot of rain there, everyone's basements flooded, all the creeks and ponds backed up, and the river washed away a five block swath of real estate closest to the city. Including a dozen bars, a few churches, and one of the oldest cemeteries.

Everytime a body washed up on the shores for the next year, they had to make sure it wasn't one of the cemetery's 'escapees'. Fun times.

The most snow the midwest has seen in over 5 years + a shit load of rain + it hasn't really warmed up completely for any length of time + a shit load of rain and storms + the northern Mississippi areas are just now thawing = GIGANTIC FLOODED CLUSTERFUCK!!!!!

I'm on high ground thank goodness but my basement still has water standing in a couple of places.  We already had our washer and dryer on stands that keep them a foot off the ground both neighbors lost theirs when the basement flooded over easter weekend.

Why do people live between the Appalachians and the Rockies, anyway?

I think we should just turn it into one huge national park, with the part known as "Illinois" fenced off and turned into a maximum security prison a la Escape From New York.

Pure curiosity, why Illinois?  I was gonna go for one of the square states that practically nobody actually lives in, anyway, for ease of fencing...

If we fenced up Chicago, the tornados would stop.

I believe this.  That place EXPORTS windy weather.

Because Illinois (at least north of I-70) is the undisputed asshole of American civilization. The plan is to build the fences before anyone even knows about the whole project. We don't want those people relocating to the coasts.

Balls.  Southern Illinois is WAY worse.  Anything Effingham or South, and you're looking at all the worst parts of 1950s America, plus widespread meth use.
