“Even with all our technology and the inventions that make modern life so much easier than it once was, it takes just one big natural disaster to wipe all that away and remind us that, here on Earth, we’re still at the mercy of nature.” – Neil DeGrasse Tyson
We are enjoying the final days of our mini vacation here at Caney Creek Corps Park on the Oklahoma side of Lake Texoma.
It is one of our favorite places to rest and unwind.
This summer, the park was closed 5/15 through 7/31 due to flooding. Our particular site was under at least 15 feet of water as the Red River ran amuck.
You’d have to be here to get a real sense of just how unbelievable that flooding was. Nature unleashed is truly frightful.
Another view of our site. Our entire motorhome would have been under water.
Kind of sobering, don’t you think?
“Woods are grim places. Farmers shoot squirrels, crows, magpies, and hang them up on trees to warn Mother Nature to get it together or else. Much notice she takes, being in league with God. They’re a right pair, more carnage than the rest of us put together.” – The Rich and the Profane by Jonathan Gash
