Default Rain, Rain- Go AWAY! Stupid weather...

The creek behind my house floods when the river it dumps into backs up. We have been getting a LOT of rain in South GA and a ton more on the way today... sux

I parked my new travel trailer out in the backyard a week or so ago and didn't even think about it. We'll, the river backed up over night and I had to try to move it... no luck. Got both my Jeeps stuck and had to winch them out. Later today, my neighbor is bringing his backhoe over to rescue my trailer from the rising waters...

Here are some photos from yesterday... I'll post a few more later of the backhoe destroying the rest of my yard. :-)

Worst part is, I didn't get the trailer moved a single foot... damnit. All that for nothing. In that last photo you can sort of see the water its now sitting in...

That sucks. Send the rain over our way, we need it, badly.

Holy Jesus man!! Best of luck with the removal today.
I'd say RDWHAHB, but it looks like you have to do some work first.

Sucks! I too am tired of the rain. If it makes you feel better, I've got to have my septic system drain field fixed tomorrow, so my yard's going to be torn up too!

Not good. My only worry when it rains heavily is losing the driveway. It's happened twice in five years. Put 95 tons of rock down last winter; it's holding so far.

Well, on the bright side, you shouldn't notice the back how marks too much
Best of luck getting your new toy to safety.

Was the winch not powerful enough to attempt pulling the trailer? I don't know much a bout winches. May be a retarded question.

We are going to suspend chains from the bucket of the backhoe to the tongue of the trailer to keep it off the ground... swing the trailer around, then pull it out. It should be very interesting- especially doing it in this weather.
