Rains are over...for now
To the north it's all thick under-brush and very weedy. So we are basically isolated and cut-off. Of course, nothing is ever totally impassable if given proper motivation, but for the common folk, we are isolated good and proper for a while.
I've called the road supervisor and left messages at his home. I called 911 so they could get 'whoever' out here to block the road so no one ran off. And when no one showed up, I called the county sheriff and told them.
Dewey will either have to get a car and hotel for his doctor visit or cancel altogether. There's just no way I'll be picking him up, or going to town for that matter. We are home-bound. Not that that's a bad thing, but still...
I will be a thorn -- a very large one -- in the sides of the road supervisor crew starting at 6 am tomorrow morning. I fully expect to be given a reasonable time frame for the repair and re-opening of my road. I'm alone with 8 children up here...of course things aren't all that dire, but I'll use what I need to to get things moving if it helps expedite matters any. Given it took all day and then some refining work the next several days to repair a cave-in big enough to shove a 55 gallon drum through, I'm anxious to see what collected monkey workings it takes to replace a culvert and repair a fully missing road.
I imagine we're cut-off for the bulk of the week, easy. Thank The Lord we didn't try church this morning. We could have caved in/washed out with it, or at the very least been trapped on the other side without a home to get to.
