game of chancemobile

We saw (but didn't play) this "game of chancemobile" at the Illinois Tollway Belvidere Oasis. The faux Volkswagon had five opportunities to lose your money trying to pick up or push objects of various values. Note the relative sizes of the slot in the plastic panel and the tip on the end of the plunger. The plunger moves horizontally and vertically via push buttons.

Flooding in Colorado

Flooding in Colorado, along I-76 between Nebraska and northeast of Denver. We saw hotels and restaurants with flood water next to the rear wall of the buildings. A relative's work parking lot was flooded and all employees lost their vehicles.
