The aircraft did not flip from a gust of wind. I was alongside the runway on the grass when the left main went into a rut causing the prop to dig in and flip the airplane. It nosed over from the rut. Wind gusts would have pushed the airplane over or ground looped it. I spoke with the airports only tenant and she said her Piper got stuck in probably the same rut and had to be pulled out.
