With the recent rains causing flooding, there are closures that can cause you some hassle and cost you some time. But look at this, it's almost dry…. Can’t be any deeper than a few inches could it? What’s the worst that could happen?

It could be a washout that is much, much deeper than you think. Wouldn’t it be embarrassing to get to the pearly gates and St. Peter tells you that you weren’t expected for another 26 years? You might just get a bit of water in your car or it’s remotely possible that you escape but your car sinks up to the windows. That would cost you a bundle to replace the car.

But if these problems aren’t enough to sway your decision, consider the real and present danger that our police are doing their jobs, i. e. protecting us from ourselves. Failure to heed a traffic device can get you a possible $150 fine.

Just sayin’…
