Stuck on Prairies in the springtime? Let us know

If you’ve tried to get past a washout or get a truck down a dirt road that looked dry at the time, we’d like to hear your cautionary tale.

Springtime driving on the Prairies can often lead to a few extra minutes in the ruts, a truck of unknown colour, or maybe a story to be laughed over the next day (well, maybe the next month, or next year) — but in a spring when deep, fast-flowing water leads to washouts or a submerged road, the end of the story can be far worse.

If this spring’s thaw and runoff have led to a close call or a story from which you believe other drivers would benefit, we’d like to see it. If you have photographs to back it up, we’d like to see them too.

Drop us a line in the comment box below, or send your tales and photos by email.

(Also, if you live within or near Manitoba’s provincial borders, we’d like to compile the best of your stories for a feature in our weekly farm newspaper, the Manitoba Co-operator. For those, we’d appreciate it if you make sure to include your name and a number where we can reach you.)
