Floodwaters from an Az monsoon storm in Prescott, Az. Taken from the old railroad bridge over Granite Creek near the Sam Hill warehouse Sept 18, 2021
Today there are floods in north Phoenix. I-17, loop 303, SR74 have closures. Black Canyon City, north of Phoenix, had 4.5 inches of rain – which is about a half a year’s worth – today. All this drained downhill to the north Phoenix area. Here’s a link: http://www.azfamily.com/news/Flooding-closes-portion-of-I-17-Carefree-Highway-in-N-Phoenix-271870741.html I know I have some readers who are former Phoenix area residents.
We are having very heavy rains in Prescott as well. More to come …
A little sunshine this morning. The photo, taken with my phone, is sunlight on a cubicle wall. My crappy cubicle was flooded again when I got to work this morning. I work in a new building which was finished in October 2012. Quality materials and workmanship … low quality of both. I am growing weary of this third rate garbage.
I hope these folks are OK. Have you noticed that we no longer see the formerly obligatory phrase “but there’s still a drought” in news stories that mention rain? Looks like the monsoon trumped the drought.
