Well, we left Heber Springs on what was supposed to be a shorter drive of around 160 miles. We drove along a nice county road through some pretty countryside. After all the rain we had this past week, everything was green and beautiful. And it was all good for about 35-40 miles when we had to unhook the Jeep, turn around, hook the Jeep back up and backtrack because our chosen path was closed due to flooding! So our short day turned into a rather long one due to the extra 70-80 miles we had to drive!
On our new route over to I-55 in West Memphis, we crossed rivers that were obviously way over their normal bounds and they were brown, angry, swirling, fast-moving flood waters. Some came within about 3-4 feet of the little bridges. We were afraid we wouldn't make it before this highway was closed, too!
We made it uo to Blytheville, hitting quite a bit of rain off-an-on. We stayed in a rather old, little park, and sat out two more days of rain. We were glad it finally cleared up so we could get back on the road.
