With the “possibility” of swollen creeks, and flooded roads please remember that it takes very little water to stall a vehicle trying to navigate. Don’t get caught standing on top of your car in a rains storm while the rescue folks have pluck you off it. It’s potentially lethal and you will most certainly be seen by all your neighbors and friends on the six o-clock news.
