Rafting on McClintock Dr.....

A couple days ago, Pat and I went out to run some errands.  The sky was dark and full of clouds but that didn't stop us.  We only had a few things to do, so why not get them done right?

Well, upon completing our tasks, it started to rain.  HARD.  We decided to get on the freeway, thinking that it would be quicker to get home, and less flooded if it started to flood.  WRONG.  We had to immediately get off the freeway since there was standing water in some areas.

We then proceeded to make our way home via surface streets.  Well, this is what we were greeted with.....

Ahh! The roads were flooding.  In some places you couldn't even see the sidewalk!  Some side streets looked like full fledged rivers.  We don't get a lot of rain here in Arizona, but when we get too much all at once this is what happens.  

I took this video while Pat was driving us through the flood.
