dang. hopefully no real damage from flooding
No but we've come real close before. This was from a clogged drain. My house sits a little lower than these if it rains tomorrow and backs up everyone's in trouble. No neighbors really care.
Thats looks wet!!! I hope it doesn't go any higher!!!
Redneck Swimming poll?
DANG!! hope it doesnt get worse... need a 6" LIFT...lol
I've always wondered about taking a truck through deep standing water. If the water has current or flow, how much "flow does it take to move the truck and keep you from making it through it ( as people get their cars stuck in flood waters. As an example..... IF a vehicle was 10,000 pounds, a water flow of 5 miles per hour would be enough to slide the vehicle and trap you in the water? because there are people that put smoke stacks and air snorkels on their trucks to keep mud and water from getting in so you can at least start the truck and try to get out.
There's usually an electric winch involved with this, too. Starting the vehicle allows the alternator to run. With the alternator going you can run an electric winch without nuking your battery rapidly. (Many people with winches don't do second batteries and, thus, can't winch out on battery-power alone...)
Why would any one with a winch not go to dual battery system? that is just crazy . But that is what makes the world go round I reckon.
