    There was a flashflood in a wash near our place this evening. I'll hopefully get some pics up soon.

    We had one a few days ago that was so bad it washed away the barricade's that the police had set up to keep people from driving into the water.

    Edit. The water in a wash can come up really fast even though the actual storm was miles away.

    Yes, I was fine, thank you Evo. It was rather minor, only about a foot and a half deep.
