If you go one direction on our gravel road there are huge washouts and deep mud and the other direction the water is running over the road for 50-100'. I was afraid of the water over the road when I took my daughter to meet the bus so I went the other way. My son went the same way later when he left for work and called back and said it was pretty hairy. Somebody went by and made it across the water over the road so I don't know which way to go to pickup my daughter.
Drive through the water if you don't mind a little water in your differential.
The neighbors hired man drove through the water with a magnum and feeder wagon when the water was at it's highest. He hit it pretty good clip and it was rough enough under the water it through him into the downstream road ditch he was able to drive back out, but if it had been me, I probably would have needed new underwear.
