We’re OK

Unlike some unfortunates on the other side of town (see the videos in the links in yesterday’s post if you haven’t already), we suffered no real damage. The house across the road and two doors down suffered a collapse of a section of their block fence. Nobody was hurt and the horse was removed OK-you can see the corral. Sorry about the picture quality, I didn’t have the heart to ask the neighbor’s permission to take pictures from his back yard. To get these, you had to go through a lot of mud and there’s a water filled ravine blocking the way.

  1. You re in the PHOENIX Area, RIGHT??? We saw some of this flooding on the Nightly NEWS last night… and though of you. THAT is so sad. Mother Nature is a Wonderful thing… until he goes CRAZY.
    We are glad that YOU are safe and suffered only minimal damage…
    So Sorry for those less fortunate though.

  2. I’m so glad you are ok, I saw it in the news last night and I thought of you and the run a muck kids.

    • RanchRunAmuck reported in safe and sound. They’re about four miles away but not in New River. ranchrunamuck.wordpress.com. They have horses, cats, and 14 rescue dogs that nobody else wants. They wanted to go hiking this weekend (I would have sent Kaci this time) but we’re booked up this weekend.

  3. Looks like a nasty storm, glad you guys came out unscathed.

  4. Your area made it on the news in Florida. We hope that everything resolves itself soon.

    • It’s bright and sunny today. We’re unaccustomed to the humidity but we’ll suffer through it. It’s 82F 28C right now but the humidity is 59% instead of the normal 5%.

  5. I’m glad you’re okay too. That’s a lot of water.

  10. When we lived in Utah we often camped at Lake Pleasant so we can relate to the New River area. That was some nasty storm weather! Flash floods are scary stuff.
