This photo is of a bridge not far from our house. I must cross it with farm equipment to get to one of my fields. The picture is taken from the middle of the bridge looking south. As you can see the 'approach' to the bridge is missing. I think it was transported via the Missouri River to somewhere near Kansas City. It was suggested at our board meeting that we should fix this or build a couple of ramps so it could be jumped ala the Dukes of Hazard. Thinking that my tractor and planter should remain in contact with Terra Firma, I landed on the 'fix it' side of this issue.
The bridge is on a curve in this drainage ditch and that fact plus the recent high water flow made for more turbulence than was planned for by the folks who installed the bridge. The approach dirt was washed out . As soon as the water level subsides a bit they will excavate and install sheet metal even deeper.
On another note, a couple of days ago I was watching TV and an Omaha Station reported that thru May 7th, this was the wettest year on record in Omaha. They have received 17 + inches of rain so far this year.
Marilyn and I were watching Boston Legal last week. We are particularly tickled with Denny Crane who is played by William Shatner. After one of his confrontations with an attractive female and having said something that should have embarrassed him but of course didn't, I said to Marilyn, "When I grow up I wanna be just like Denny Crane." She got all serious like and looked at and said "Honey, you already ARE Denny Crane." My dreams for my future dashed again.
