Yesterday it rained like crazy here in Phoenix. I could not go to work. The freeway I normally take to work was completely flooded out. There were pictures on the news showing cars almost completely underwater. It was amazing. Chandler AZ got 6 inches of rain. I know that doesn’t sound like much compared to other parts or the world but, to us, it was a LOT.
In addition school for my older child was also closed due to flooding. My younger son, on the other hand, had to go to school while we stayed home. He was NOT happy. Poor kid. On top of that my poor little dog was really conflicted. She pawed at the front door to go potty but, as soon as I opened the door, she saw the rain and was like… NOPE, I’ll just pee in the house thank you very much! I even took her out on the leash thinking that if I forced the issue she might go since she was already wet. That didn’t work at all. In the end we were both wet. And mad. I took the following video of a park near my house, which was also completely under water. Fortunately my house was fine.
