During week 24 it rained. A lot. We had several severe storms in the Chicago area, knocking out power, knocking down whole trees. A tree in my own backyard crashed down, shutting down our power. Two days later–we still didn’t have power–another storm ripped through. We drove through the neighborhood as the storm was ending, dodging trees and flooding. Oak Park looked like a war zone. The bright side: We were no longer the only ones on the block without power. Needless to say many photographs from this week deal with the storms in some way.
