Buck and Mill-wheel Forrester show up to see if Penny and Jody want to come with them to take a look at the damage, so they'll know what to expect. Um, we're guessing they're going to find a lot of water.
As they ride, they see dead animals scattered everywhere, on the higher dry ground and floating in the flood waters. Freaky.
They stop by Doc Wilson's house to check on him, but he's left a note saying he skedaddled to avoid the storm. Smart man.
They shoot a bunch of wildcats, so they won't come after their farm animals, and then set up camp for the night.
They eat and tell stories, and eventually fall asleep.
But suddenly, Penny wakes Jody up. He's heard an alligator nearby! Hey—what do alligators say, anyway? Cows say 'moo'…and apparently alligators say 'whooo?'
They run at it to drive it away, and go back to sleep. They can sleep after that?
The next morning, they continue their trek, finding a huge flooded area full of fish—and, yikes, bears.
They decide to shoot some for the meat, and Jody actually hits one. Go Jody!
They load it up onto their horses, and then each family heads for home.
