For those that are not familiar with the AZ Monsson season, we got between 1 - 2 inches in an hour.



A portion of US 60 was flooded out for about 2 hours.

In addtion to hydrolocking, it only takes a few inches of monsoon flowage through a wash to sweep a car downstream.

Please tell me I am really thick today, and this is a goof. If this is true, I really to have to mentally surrender to the fact that humanity is doomed.

My favorite monsoon picture is the VW bus tucked into an I-beam, right next to the 12 foot mark on the underpass (Tucson). Mind you, they had to go around a barricade to get into the water and there was only 2-3 feet clearance between the water and the I-beam.

One of my BILs was in the Pima County Sheriffs' department & every year he would pull 4x4s out of washes, with or without bodies.
