Saw the flooding on the news, hope you guys are ok. Don't want to see you on the news, sitting on your roof clutching all your guns while everything else floats down the street.

My 10/22 is safe, that's all that matters.


Send me an email, I lost your address. Bob

Really?

I could swear that guy who jumped off the U-Haul and banged his head on the overpass pillar and fell in the water was you, Gunbert! =)

Just kidding, hope everyone is okay!

Well, while at work yesterday. My work unit was rear ended during the flood.

I still haven't seen the video of the guy that pulled that slick move.. What exactly was he hoping to do from jumping from his truck? Catch the overpass and crawl to saftey?

As his U Haul was floating down the road (albiet very slowly) I think he saw the opportunity to to jump to dry land since the overpass pillar had a patch of land. It may or may not have made sense because the flood waters would've filled up that patch real quick then he would've been surrounded in water. The news said he is okay. Hard to believe, that was one of those things, where you see it, and you go "OOOOOOHHHHH!!!"

Nah; I think (saw) he was jumpin' at the chance for a "Darwin" award.

At least we got enough rain to wash the pigeon crap off the roofs.

Being up on a hill I've never worried about flash flooding at my house. If my house was flooded that would leave the rest of Vegas under a couple hundred feet of water. Still trying to get ahold of a friend who lives up around the Rainbow/Cheyenne area.

Talk to the friend of mine I mentioned that lives 1/2 a block from Rainbow/Gowan where the reporters was saying was the "worst hit" area. Turns out his house, and others on the short culdesac, are elevated about 3 feet higher than Rainbow is, so they were able to stay high and dry.

Serrada lives over near Gowan I believe. He sent me some pics of some severly flooded area really close to his place... May be he will share them?

I reckon I could share them. This is on Gowan about three miles east of Rainbow. In the third picture that car in the distance was stuck in the road.
