So I decided to go prerun my route in the truck. Mind you my truck has 33" tires and a 3 inch lift so it is not huge but it will give you an idea of the depth of the water I encountered.

In this pic you can vaguely see the grass and debris stuck in my rad.

This pic shows how high that is in relationship to my 6' frame.

This was just in town Marion. Needless to say, the bike will be staying in the garage tonight.

In other news, Casper the Friendly Ghost was thought to be rescuing residents of a flooded trailer park, turns out it was just an angry irishman trying to recover laptops and flatscreens that the payments had not been made on....

It was a good thing that I had been practicing my creek crossings. Otherwise I would not have gotten to work.
