You can’t get there from here

Good thing I happened to put a map of the county in my car to bring to work (because I want to study the locations of rivers). Too bad I forgot to bring along the cell phone number of the person I was meeting.

The road to my meeting was closed, because there was water on the road. Unlike yesterday, when I successfully drove to my destination through torrential rain. Today the sun was out and I thought the danger of flooding had passed. The map helped me attempt an alternate route, which also was blocked by “Road Closed. Water on Road” signs.

A nice public works guy suggested I drive north to another city and come back down through it. Splendid idea, although it took me several tries even with a map.

I arrived at my destination 45 minutes late, to learn that the person I was meeting was home sick. Awesome.
