The Facebook page of Grinter Farms, the place with the acres and acres of sunflowers this time of year, posted a warning Saturday.
It detailed the rain from the night before and warned about all the water wiping out parking for those who want to see the 40 acres of sunflowers Saturday.
“You’ll need a tow truck and possibly a canoe,” the post read. “No parking. Zero. Zip. Zilch. None...”
An update indicated that sightseers to the Leavenworth County farm also won’t be able to park on the side of the road because it could block the way for emergency vehicles if they were needed.
“There really is no safe parking. Also, you’ll get stuck,” the post read. No one answered the phone at the farm Saturday morning.
On Labor Day, so many people flocked to Grinter’s field to catch and capture a look at the flowers that the county sheriff closed access at mid-afternoon. Reports indicated that cars were backed up nearly five miles along U.S. 40/24 between Lawrence and Tonganoxie.
