Dirt Turns To Mud

Just a short update... my dirt road turned to mud.




When parts of Texas received up to nine inches of rain on Friday the Sabanna River rose up out of its banks and we had to go in the back way, which other than the 20+ feet of water is a much worse road. This was 18 hours after the rain had stopped and the bridge is still under 10+ feet of water. Two full days later we were able to cross with some effort.

You could have done what Texans do in that situation...zip east on I-20 and wait out the storm and after math in the SB Land casinos.

I hate to crush your theory... but I AM Texan... and I have NEVER run from a storm... certainly not to Louisiana! HA!

No theory just observation after working three years in the SB Land casino industry. And they don't run (a Texan would never run... Alamo and all that) they just tool down the road and come wait out storms (rain, ice, snow) in the comfort of a riverboat. Beats staying in the root cellar (I could tell you about those since I grew up in Oklahoma's Green Country).
