Before I go any further, I'm going to warn you.. this is going to sound like a sermon. And if you will listen to my words, maybe I will save your life. I can only hope.

I want to talk about HIGH WATER. We have a saying:


People around here seem to ignore the saying. Their claim is that they've lived here all their lives, they know the roads, they know how deep the water is.. yadda yadda yadda

What they do not take into account what can be under that water... or what might NOT be there - like the road itself.

Anytime you come across water over a road, TURN AROUND! Last year one guy found out the hard way, he couldn't see the road for the water... because the road had fallen in, leaving a cavernous drop, which his little truck took a nose-dive into. Thankfully, he was not hurt. You Just Do Not Know!

If you do choose to drive through water that appears to just be a few inches, drive slow. Do not spray water up into your intake. That will flood out your engine and leave you at the mercy of any current you did not realize was there. Not to mention the towing cost and the the mechanic cost for drying out your engine. Do you REALLY have to be out and about in a storm that bad? Seriously?

Sadly, some people have chosen to attempt flooded roads and have never lived to see the other side. At least not of this world. Is getting somewhere more important than having more time with your family? Or risking your family?

Be Safe!
