Yes, it's still raining. This makes down-day #4 in LaSalle County, Illinios. You remember that getting to this location took three tries. On the second try, pilot Chris had a scare in the air. Click on the photo above to see the rest of that story!

CraneCam is LIVE each day from 6:30 to 10:00 a.m. and again from 3:30 to 4:30 in the afternoon, just before sunset. The TrikeCam is LIVE during flights.
