Texas car wash?
nice splash. How long did the ignition stay dry? I like the Goodyear diamond treads and the electric lights on the White truck.
If that's Texas are you sure that's mud not bull
Speaking of Diamond treads, Goodyear supplied them in the 20's to the Yellowstone buses and carved serial numbers into all of them apparently to trace them and evaluate wear.
Burnet looks to be quite a ways inland, but could that have still been from a hurricane?
Thank you Herb!
Wonder how well that thing cooled after clogging the radiator with mud?
Must be the local moonshiner.
Burnet is in central Texas northwest of Austin. The annual rainfall is typically very minimal, but probably every place in Texas has seen its '100 year' flood and maybe this was it for Burnet. In 1957, my wife and her family lived in Lampasas, Texas, north of Burnet, I think in the next county. Lampasas had its '100 year' flood. A earthen dam on Sulphur creek broke sending a wall of water over 5 feet high through most of the small town during the night of Mother's Day in May. Only 5 lives were lost and my wife and her Mother, brother, and sister survived by holding onto tree branches and a clothes line until the water went down.
You don't have to go that far back. In 1998, we had 13 inches of rain in one day. We were trapped at the house for three days with the roads under about 6' of water down by the creeks and flow off the fields. Most of San Antonio was under water including parts IH-10 and IH-35. US-281 over the Olmos Basin was covered with 3-4' of water. They had a 24-hour watch on Canyon Dam and Medina Dam. The whole Medina valley was evacuated for fear of the dam letting go. It was the first time in the history of Canyon Dam that water went over the spillway and crested the top. It was the highest level recorded for both lakes.
We don't often get much rain but when it comes it's often followed by flash flooding. That photo is nothing but a mud puddle.
