FLOODED IN, West of St. Augustine, Florida
ME | MAY 03.2013 | swampsniper

Daughter and son in law just came back in, they couldn't get more than half a mile from the homestead. There is fast flowing water over the road.

It will be HAPPY GATOR TIME out here!

In north Broward here, got stuck in road flooding that was half up my car door while trying to get daughter from school (didn’t want her to walk home in this mess).

Now my check engine light is on. I hope it was just some wiring that got wet.

That’s the same system that got us over the past few days. It must have went out into the Atlantic and built up more water to dump. I think we got 15 inches in less than 2 days. Had to cross the street to get milk from convenience store and my shorts were to my hips.

Take a look at your oil level, if the oil on the dipstick looks milky you’ve picked up some water and need an oil change.

I know, sometimes slip ups can be funnier than intentional. LOL!

I just wanted to come back and say thank you for this advice. I had the option of a $60 scanner check, or just go ahead and change my oil (which was close to being necessary anyway). Couple miles after driving, the light went off!!!

Most appreciate my FRiend!
