These are all from Howard's Mill. I dared to travel it today to see how bad the water still was a day after all the rain. The guys driveway is somewhere under all that Water.
He'd need more than a boat to get across that now!
We turned around last night before this point, dad's car couldn't go through the water that was there, but it's lower today. Only 8 or so inches deep if I took a guess on the depth as I drove through it today, behind a silverado. He eventually turned around.
Looking out the side as I drove through. That's supposed to be a cattle pasture, not a lake. I promise. I went slow but not terrible depth there.
This is Slate Creek. It doesn't normally go that high, but the bridge was dry. Thankfully there wasn't many people around as I was able to stop in the middle of the road and take pictures.
I was more hesitant at this spot. The truck coming on I had watched go past where I had backed into a driveway to wait go up the road and then I came down to it when the silverado truck I had been following had backed up in the next driveway and turned around, going back to avoid the water. He wasn't daring the water. I was still thinking about it.
This guy had gone through it once and then came back. He was a Kentucky State DOT dude-in a Ford F150. He talked to me once he got up to me, and told me he'd wait to make sure I got it all the way through but so long as I stay slow and let the truck idle it's own way through. I made it, but boy I wouldn't do it again!!! Very nerve wracking!
