Rain!

This is a photo of flooding in Long Beach, Ca yesterday....its not that bad here in the Inland...this is along the coast....we do have some road closures as I mentioned yesterday.....Salt Creek went over the streets..these Arizona bridges are built for that......

Don (DS) came home early this morning and said he had a accident last night.....he was driving and the rain came down so hard, his visibility wasn't very good....he saw two flooded yellow signs on either side of the road (this was out in the country, no street lights) so he carefully drove down the middle of the street when he hit a white street closed sign that he couldn't see..fortunately, he was able to get through to the other side alright.....but his van has a crumbled hood......yellow is easier to see in the pouring rain than white..the city should have had lights on the closed sign or used yellow instead..he asked Matt to help him at the dog rescue today as there is alot of work to do..sand bagging, etc.
The weather people are predicting another big storm this afternoon.... and then one perhaps next Tuesday....
