This is what is left of our creek crossing after a recent storm dumped almost 4 inches of rain within 12 hours on top of the snow melt. It is completely gone. Four pipes blew out and went downstream.
There is one of the four pipes on our neighbor’s property. Two more of them were on the other end of his property, but he was able to bring them back to us with his tractor.
This is some of the remains of some of Dave’s previous work on it.
It used to go straight across. That is one of the problems. The guy who put the crossing in should have made it with a dip since we did not have big enough pipes to handle this kind of water. It acted like a dam with a huge amount of pressure on it.
This may give a better feel of the drop off. It use to go straight across.
We found our fourth pipe on the property two neighbors down. I only have a video of it, not a pic and I cannot upload a video here without a premium site. We have an idea of how much force that pipe took. It has a dent in the middle of it. We don’t have that one back, yet. We are hoping he can get it with our truck after the ground dries a bit.
The night the rain fell, as Dave was laying in bed, he felt G-D tell him He was going to turn this to good. Dave had a peace, not knowing what we were going to find the next morning. Worry wouldn’t have changed anything anyway. So, we are doing what we can and awaiting the good that is to come.
Thankfully, he was able to get the creek so that we can drive the truck through it when the water is not as high as it is in these photos. Talk about G-D’s provision, we were able to buy a truck just a few months ago. Without it, we would not be able to drive off the property. My car certainly won’t get across.
So, this is added to the list of miracles we need taken care of. He will provide. We will continue to do our part and trust Him to lead us and guide us.
