INT. TRAILER - DAY
The waters have fallen since Thursday, when there was barely a foot between the creek and the bridge.
Yesterday morning, after some creaking and popping, a cottonwood fell across the creek, coming to rest in the fork of another.
All day long we walked around these trees trying to determine which way the tree will fall when it eventually falls to the ground, and whether we should move the trailer outside its potential fall lines.
We still haven't decided. Nor has Brian's evocation of Murphy's Law been much help: "If you move the trailer, it won't fall; if you don't move the trailer, it will."
