Flooding = Stuck?

Do you have drive roads to where if it rains a lot, is there a chance that you will be stuck at home not able to go anywhere unless you have a boat?

We have a private road that has a dip. On one side of the dip is a pond (which is actually just a collection of water from other places). There's a culvert pipe under the road to where if the water gets deep enough, it will go through the pipe and flow into the other side. Once that we know of it rained enough to where water was actually running overtop of our road, but it was only a couple inches deep, so we could drive through with no problem. But it did get me to wonder what we would do if it was quite a bit more than a couple inches of water.

  • We used to, and years ago we were stranded for 3 days with no power or water. It rained for days, everything flooded, and nobody could get to us. And it was summer and VERY hot. It was not fun, very humbling, and I can't even imagine what people do after a tornado, hurricane, etc, when they are stranded for even longer periods of time. Our neighbors did use their little boats to check things out in the neighborhood, which was kind of funny.

  • We live in town, but a LOT of the gravel roads around here are closed due to being so soft. The rural mail carrier bottomed out his mail vehicle the other day in a boggy spot.
