I did end up having to put on hip boots and wade out to my Vibe on Sunday morning. I am glad I packed relatively light in a tote bag that had two straps, so it could be worn as a backpack. It probably weighed about 35 pounds at least with all my clothes, books, toiletries and two pairs of shoes in it. The hip waders were too big, so it took a bit of effort just to walk on the muddy gravel, much less the part where I waded through cold river water that varied from ankle-deep to mid-thigh deep. I was sweating fairly hard by the end of the walk, even though it's only about 0.6 miles and usually doesn't take that much of an effort.

Luckily, the high ground around my Vibe had dried out, so I was able to get out of there under my own power and didn't have to be towed out of a couple inches of water and muck, as my Mom and her neighbor were worrying about. 

It was a long drive back, too, but I made good time and had books on CD to keep me company. It's good to be home.

I'm glad you managed to get home ok. Sounds like a less-than-pleasant and stressful experience.

We actually had a ball. It didn't work out the way we had anticipated, but it was fun to spend time with the family, and yakking and cooking with my Mom. The flood was an annoyance, but it's a family story that will not be forgotten any time soon!
