We have been inundated with telephone calls and e-mails asking about our safety after the storms that passed through today. Despite reports on national and local news, the entire landmass north of Phoenix has not been washed from the face of the earth.
There was a hairy moment this morning when Slugger got stuck out in the rain, but Crabby was able to rescue him and get him back in the house before he melted.
The only significant problems (and those which lead to the news reports) were due to idiot drivers who believed low slung cars could make it through rivers of water crossing the roadways, and the effects of the “Build Baby Build” attitude in Arizona which allowed homes to be built without proper drainage considerations or inspections.
But it’s all over now, and we’re still standing. Thanks to all who expressed concern about our well-being.
Your sympathy is now requested as we endeavor to make it through the next few days with 54 paws dragging mud, non-stop, through the house.
I wasn’t home for storms 1-3, so no pictures of them, but here are some After Shots of Storm #4.
