Along the way we saw the results of the 5 inches of rain we received right before Christmas.
2009 has turned out to be the wettest year EVER on record for the state of Arkansas!
When we were 10 miles away from our destination we found that the road was completely flooded. It was also officially closed although some people were still trying to cross it. We saw a minivan that had been swept off the road into even deeper water, and we felt it would be wisest to turn around and take an alternate route. It took us an extra half hour, but we were glad to arrive safely and just in time for Christmas dinner.
