Water Hazards

A near tragedy when I took my puppy for a walk and was unaware of the culverts due to the over topping of the road by flood water.   She had disappeared into some long grass and then did not come out.

Sadly, I know of several drastically worse outcomes from encounters with thin ice or other water hazards.
