Southern New Castle County received quite a soaking this past weekend. How much rain did we get?  Well, enough for one local crawfish to go off exploring in the wide, wide world.

 

As the torrential downpour abated on Sunday, local photographer Michele Godwin snapped a picture of what she describes as a “seriously enraged crawfish” crossing Fieldsboro Road in Townsend by Odessa National.

It’s unclear whether the crawfish was upset at the much-delayed construction of the Odessa National clubhouse, or simply didn’t want his picture being taken.  Regardless, crawfish are not normally seen crossing roads, even down in Townsend.

 

We live just a mile or two from where Michele Godwin snapped her photograph. On Tuesday morning, my wife was surprised to discovered a visitor in our recently constructed pool- you guessed it, a crawfish!  He seemed more content and less agitated relaxing in the pool.

Thankfully, a crack emergency response team of specially trained cheerleaders from the East Coast Nitros was on hand to rescue the wayward critter, and put him back in a nearby freshwater stream.

And as he swam away, an age old question had been answered.  Why did the crawfish cross the road? To get to the Stafford’s pool!
