Flash Floods...pics
    #3613633 - 01/11/05 06:19 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

So work got cancelled today due to weather. I went outside and saw a beautiful rainbow as I looked down my street...


I decided I'd go exploring since it was such a nice day. I was gonna go hiking at Redrock Canyon, but alas, the road was flooded and I couldn't get there. However, I did manage to take a few pics of the flash flooding that was taking place.




Notice the concrete 'steps' on the far side? Those are a couple of feet tall each. That'll give you an idea of the amount of water that was flowing in this normally dry wash. And also notice, it is clear and sunny where I took these pictures. That is what makes flash floods so dangerous, you can be a long ways from the storm and still get hit by the flood.

I also took some video which gives you a better idea of the amount of water that was flowing in this wash. But the video files are much too large to share here.

Nah, no threat to humanity here (unless someone does something stupid :smirk: ).  Those concrete 'steps' are leading into a catch basin designed specifically for this purpose, to catch flood water and spare the neighborhoods below from the flood.  Although this basin was at the fullest point I had ever seen it there was still a long way to go before property damage occured.

Well, you know, you'll just be sitting there, minding your own business, and they'll come, marching in and crawl up your leg and start biting the inside of your ass. And you'll be all like, "HEY! Get out of my ass you stupid rainbows!"
