Monsoon Returns With A Vengeance

Yesterday was a really nice day a little on the hot side but sunny. I was supposed to go to Walmart but OH NO had to mess around until it was to late to go.

I knew we were going to get more rain today and for the next 3-4 days. So I hopped out of bed and got ready but had to wait until I fed Fred and drank some coffee. Big mistake, it had already started to thunder and I new I wasn't going anywhere. The sky was almost black. Sure enough my 8:45 am it started pouring down hard and kept it up for about an hour then just kept raining for a few hours.

This was the results in many places. Now this bridge has feet marked on it to tell you how deep the water is. I guess the fool who's car is under this water somewhere must have thought it was inches. As you can see the yellow bar states the clearance is only 13' 6" so you know that water is deep and over 5'

We are looking at the same weather for tomorrow and Thur. then a little drying period. You know I am not leaving my house or at least not the Village. 

Good Night All


  1. When I see people driving in high water I just wonder what they are thinking.

  2. Oh wow!! That looks dangerous. Glad you are staying safe.

  3. You folks are getting hit hard, we are watering our plants....today was hell dentist day! Ugh. Love those times.

  4. Hi Gypsy,
    There has been a law put in place for these kinds of people it's call the Stupid Motorist Law. They have to pay for all the rescue costs. and then get fined and ticketed, by time its all said and done it can cost about $10,000. if not more.

    Hi Nancy, Yes it is and I got caught in the first big one, now if they say rain I'm staying home.

    Hi Phyllis,

    They did show some folks using canoes and kayaks.

    Hi Jane,
    I can't believe you haven't gotten any rain. My friend said it has done nothing but rain in the mountains and Phx. has had lots of rain too. I guess its just going right around you. Hope all went well with the dentist
