I know many of y'all are dealing with snow out the wazoo. We aren't cold enough to have snow but we did get rain, lots and lots of rain! So much that I called into work on Friday to say I would be late. I prefer to drown in the daylight if it's gonna happen. Just kidding.
I did want to wait till it was daylight before I left the house. I also wanted to give the water a chance to subside, even though it was still raining. I headed out and came to our bridge. The water was just under it. But it was over the road on the other side.
Our little creek had turned into a river.
Plus there was this issue. A pointy broken tree in my path. I decided I better go another way. If the water was over the road here, it was most likely over the road at the next bridge. I backed up the road to turn around.
The bridge on the other road was okay to cross. Then it's just 10 miles of dirt road. Blah!
When I came home that evening the water was still right under the bridge but no longer over the road. The big pointy stick was still there too but I managed to drive by it this time.
Now we're just dealing with cold temps and mud. Have I told y'all lately how much I hate mud? I do, I really, really do.
My "AHA" moment.
