    Anyone else getting crazy flooding?

    I just drove through this stuff. Apologize for the low rent cell phone pics. Motion pictures at night are no bueno.

    You call that flooding? You just said you DROVE through it. That's not flooding. You should've visited me in South Texas or Florida for that matter... when the SO has to use a boat to get people from their houses.


    Oh wait... poor 121. When I said cry my a river... I was joking. Are you feelings hurt because I've been mean to you all day.

    One up? I was just inviting you to visit.

    Besides, we both know I'm not the insecure one between the two of us.

    El Paso, Texas, of all places, had to evacuate last week because they got so much rain (15 inches!!!) that the dam was in danger of breaking.

    Yet north of Dallas where I am, Lake Lewisville is 10 feet below normal!

    Rain subsides after storm swamps El Paso

    El Paso's flooding fears ease

    No Shit...Everything around here is dead and I have cracks in my yard that you could lose a small child in!

    121, If you could share a little of the rain that you are receiving...that would be great!!!

    Go ahead run...I'll even give you a head start!

    When the public needs help, they call the Police.

    that isnt all that bad... lol
    it gets like that here in an afternoon thunderstorm... pretty much to the bottom of the door or car .. 1/2 way up the tires... then some places we have to close off the intersections till it passes because the quick floods do go up half the cars quickly...

    HAHAHAH i just remembered... I had a call of 3 cars stuck in what they said was 'dangerous' standing water after one of our storms.... i get there and they are on their hoods and roofs with the cars half under water... but the water is standing water and going down... i just about died laughing when one woman threw herself off her car and started to try to swim... flailed around and then stood up... AHAHAHAHHAH omg... i almost wet my pants
    she walked over to my patrol car and asked me why I didnt go save her...
    anyway... I called her a tow truck
    oh i wish i had a video of that.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    Riding out the flood

    From your pictures it looks like you were in my neck of the woods... It seems like we've had a couple of god awful rain storms in the past week. If those pictures are from the storm I'm thinking of, I was assisting with traffic on an injury accident during it... Looked like a drowned rat afterwards. 48th and Colorado had well over a foot of standing water (how might I know this? I was standing in it!)
