Flooding In Vail, AZ – Rainbow Skies! 9/08/2014

Monday, September 8th, 2014

Recently, we had some flash flooding in Tucson that left a couple of people dead. These people had ignored the road signs telling them not to proceed ahead when there is water on the road ahead.  We always see the signs and never see water except…

The above was a wake up call to all of us to respect the water!

Today, we were suppose to get a powerful monsoon rain. I wanted to check out our drainage to determine if we needed to put up gutters or not. We really didn’t get much rain in our yards but the washes all flooded with the water coming off the mountains and in the surrounding areas. I took pictures of the rainbows in the skies around our house as well as the washes that are behind our house and along side our house.
