Five feet high and rising

Still raining but on the bright side the tornado warnings have expired. Arizona doesn't see many tornadoes fortunately, in fact they are quite rare, but with the El Nino inspired weather that has hit CA and our state anything is possible. We have received over half the rainfall that the sate normally gets in the past couple of days and the storms are prognosticated to continue through the weekend. This reallyput a damper (pun intended) on our trip to Tucson thsi weekend. Casa Grande, a town midway between here and Tucson is seeing flooding as I type this - the freeway interchange at that spot is a mess on the best of days, so this will just add to the log job encountered when trying to get past that city (using the term loosely) and on to Tucson.

I remember the warnings from parents on flash floods while in Texas.
Still, the last tool you'de ever expect to need in your neck of the woods would be a canoe.

I'de say "stay dry" except for two things,
#1 duh...of course you will. Too old to go play in the puddles. (maybe)
#2 by the time you read this, the water's probably gone...

Awww.....I have a Siberian Husky, as well! :) Her name is Kira and she will be 3 yrs old this May. She's red & white with the blue eyes. LOVE her to death! :)

Aren't Huskies the greatest dogs ever!?!
