Late last night a storm hit the Phoenix Valley. Normally we receive an average of 3/4″ of water in all of September. In just several hours of straight rain, we’ve had over 4″ of water, some places in the valley over 5″ of water. They’re saying this is likely the most rain we’ve received at once in 100 years. Might not sound so crazy, but for us Arizonans who are not so prepared for flash floods, the freeways were shut down in several parts for hours, cars filled with water up to halfway up their windows, and many schools canceling.
Needless to say it’s all anybody is talking about … and blogging about.
Check out our take on it.
