Our street flashed but we fared fine.

I've lived through many hurricanes and can honestly say I've never seen rain that hard. It's like a microburst of rain. Luckily it only lasted 8-10 minutes over my house. Freaking nuts though.

I was driving down I-70 one summer between Crescent Junction and Thompson Springs when up ahead was just a black cloud that looked like a set of drapes coming down onto the freeway. When I pulled into it I couldn't see a thing the water was coming down so hard. There was about 6 inches of water on the roadway and this went on for about a mile. When I came out of it the sun was out and there was no indication of any rain had even happened.

Spanish Fork is getting a good soaking right now. Cut my recurve shootIng practice short and I was really in a groove, but I dont mind one bit. I'm so **** grateful for this monsoon season I cant even tell you. What a relief! Maybe with a little luck we will get some snow this winter!

I hope you Cedar guys are staying safe down there and aren't sustaining damage. Watching the footage of that guy that lost his rig in Summit on the news was kind of stunning. Here in Springville, we got a pleasant rain, but nothing heavy at all. Enough to water the garden and lawn. It will suffice.



Do you think PBH will let us fish his new pond?

I'll bet Winslow sneaks in there and poaches all the big ones before we get around to it.

Estimate is 200 homes with basement damage in Enoch. And that driver on the frontage road in Summit got so lucky.

Much needed break this week. Hopefully whatever is causing these crazy monsoon moisture levels will dissipate and we can just appreciate "normal" amounts of rain.

I was curious if anyone has been out to Quichapa and if so how full is it. It came down hard a few times here in Parowan, but I've seen much worse here.

Looking across the valley from up by the "C" when I come home from the cabin, it has gone from totally dry, up to 1/3 to 1/2 at the most full now.
They try to get most of it to go out into the valley now to get more down in the aquifers.

By the time I got home, everything was dry. I know the saying is that "the foolish man builds his house upon the sand", but so far I'm kind of liking this sandy soil!

the view of the smoke filled valley isn't great -- it's terrible!


I've had big (mature) toads showing up on my patio at my place. The dog was quite confused with a toad the other night -- she didn't know what to make of it. It's pretty amazing that I can build a house in the middle of desert sagebrush and cactus, and after a few rainstorms I have toads emerging from the ground!

then there's the kochia and russian thistle....

The the water in Quichapa is what makes it a great picture to me. I appreciated him taking the time to take it and answering my post about Quichapa.
