Muddy Roads

Hello Dear Reader,
If Caroline and the children had to go some place on a muddy day, the children ran ahead of the car putting sagebrush in the ruts in the road so the car wouldn’t get stuck. They were always worried that they would get stuck. They had to go out sometimes to get groceries and other supplies.

One winter Caroline tried going home a new way. Hardly anyone ever used the road she took. Sure enough, the car got stuck. But Arch Francis, a friend and neighbor, came along with a big team of horses and pulled the Halls all the way to their house. Mary said, “It was awful, just awful. We about all froze to death.”

It has been raining a lot here and some of the roads have parts that are flooded. Luckily they are paved so we can still get through--I guess I should try harder not to take paved roads for granted.
