A Public Service Announcement From Mrs. Hillbilly Mom

Here's why you should wait for the water to be UNDER the bridge again before you try to cross.

We were without the use of this low-water bridge on Sunday, Monday, and most of Tuesday. By Tuesday evening, it was passable again. Funny how I didn't see this little item as I was going in the other direction. It kind of jumped out at me Wednesday morning.

That shocker didn't give us time for a photo, what with it being duty day for me. On the way home, I had The Pony snap this picture out his window. He couldn't zoom in because the sun was blinding off the water. This morning, he took this other photo, but couldn't rest his elbows anywhere steady. It's blurry, but a more colorful representation.


Don't think you can drive through "several inches" of rushing water. The water has other ideas.

You country folks have a different idea of "water sports" than BigCity people. What other water sports do you guys engage in?

Good grief. Wonder how the insurance company will handle that lack of common sense...

Sioux,
We are partial to swimming in the buttwater soup of the above-ground pool that is never drained, but only shocked with chemicals each summer.

Colleen,
I don't know how they're going to get it out of the creek. It's still there. I suppose they'll have to send a guy in waders to hook up a cable, and get their tow truck kind of sideways on that sideless bridge, and winch it for all it's worth.
