    I've always been interested in weather/storms/droughts etc. Saw this pretty cool video the other day. Flood chasers took this footage of a debris flood after some heavy rains in the Utah desert last week. Enjoy!

    we have something called the stupid motorist law.

    if you drive into an area with flowing water and you get stuck, you pay for the rescue. rescues are very expensive.

    i'd prefer that they just leave them there so they can't breed anymore but nooooooooooooooo!

    "Turn around, don't drown!" everytime we have the chance of flash floods around here they all say that. :facepalm: people are stupid.."maybe I should drive thru this river of water...i can make it."

    LA is so big that there are Flash Flood warnings from the county and most people haven't even had a drop of rain :wtf:

    although we did set our record a few weeks ago for rainfall on a certain July day: 0.04" :yes:

    weird how floods carry dirt, silt, and wood, and how when it stops, and the mud dries out, you have layers of sediment left behind.

    so weird.
