Last Thursday, as flood reports from throughout the area were all over the news, I listened intently to any reports about Kane County flooding. When I didn't see anything on the news, I figured all was good and headed to the gym.
After my class, our instructor mentioned that her husband was over at the Herrington Inn and Spa in Geneva, trying to save it from the Fox River. Looking at my phone, my editor was telling me the same thing.
It was awesome to see dozens of volunteers jump into action to help fill sandbags to keep the historic hotel up and running.
