The past 2 days in Maydelle, Texas we have received an unholy amount of rain. The first day we got 4 inches, the second day I think we got at least 3 more but I can’t be sure because when we had all that crazy cold weather in January my rain gauge cracked at the 4 inch marker. Anyway, it was a LOT of water. And we needed it so “Hooray for Rain!”. My husband and I thought it would be a great idea to go look at the creek on the back of our farm……
The Texas State Railroad runs beside our property including this trestle….cool, huh?
So off we go thru the forest…….
….marveling at the amount of water that bled from the creek into the woods.
As we are tootling along all the sudden “Plop! Gurgle! Mild Expletive!”.
Translation-we fell off into a hole.
This is the part where I get off, wade thru the water and take pictures of wild strawberries while Rob figures out how to drive to the other side and pick me up.
Only it doesn’t work like that. There is an even bigger hole which the 4-wheeler falls into.
I put up my camera, climb aboard and hit the gas while rocking the thing from side to side hoping to gain traction while my darling husband pushes and lifts from behind while getting a rooster tail of mud on his head. We ‘rocked out’ (snicker, snicker)
Needless to say we made it. And next time it rains more than 4 inches in Maydelle and we go look at the creek, we’re gonna stay on the high side!
