"Water Works" and "Got Mail" were the two most interesting geocaches of the day. At "Water Works", the cache is attached to a floater and it is in a pipe that you have to fill with water in order to get the cache out. I knew that from the description so I brought a 5-gallon bucket. I also knew from experience that the pipe would have a hole letting the water drain out, so I brought a roll of duct tape as well to cover that hole. Then I used water from a nearby creek and I was able to retrieve the cache. "Got Mail" is a simple puzzle cache leading to a little padlocked mailbox on the wooden fence outside the Pocopson post office. I thought it was great that the postmaster allowed this cache placement but I noticed that it is in a play area with a mini post office for kids. Nice to see a USPS location not taking itself too seriously.
The last cache of the day was in Parkesburg. The light snow turned into a blizzard suddenly and so I decided to call it a day. Parkesburg probably wasn't the best place to be during a snowstorm. As I was about to leave town, I noticed that traffic was backed up, probably because of an accident or other blockage on the curvy country road outside of town. So I had to detour and take a longer way back to Route 41 to get home.
