As I left North Bristol and approached Benhams, a man held his arm out the window and flashed his lights. I wondered what was going on.
The creeks were out in the road and water was rushing across the pavement. I drove through it, and I got to the other side, but my car moved. I was scared. More water was ahead, but this time I could see the yellow center lines so I drove through cautiously but knew I could reach the other side.
Benhams was a mess. There’s pictures all over Facebook of the water. I drove down Nordyke and halfway down encountered this…a log was in the road and Nordyke Creek was there with it.
After the log was moved, it was still too dangerous to go through. I turned around and went to my cousin’s house. Mike was able to drive up in the truck and get me. Since I drive a Prius which is low to the ground, there was no way I was going to drive through water again. Here’s the creek that was in the road.
Further down, Sherman Pippin (Bubby)and friends were working to get Barb’s old bridge (Barb is Bubby’s sister) off of Bubby’s bridge.
Whew! Sometimes the day is a challenge.
