It's been an active monsoon but for some reason, my backyard has been an island of missed chances, so as I sat at work earlier today watching the radar with some bright colors just east of town I got a little excited. Of course it didn't head my way, but all the gauges and radar estimates told me to blow off the afternoon and find that running water.

I threw some things in my pack and headed out. A couple of flood-related obstacles and a creative story at the MCSO blockade and I was soon jumping in feet first. Early signs were not promising, but around the corner the desert came alive.

This area has clearly not flooded yet this summer and the water was probably not epa-approved. I got in chest-deep in one of the foam filled pools but purposely avoided full submersion and kept my head above water.

The sun came out and the heat and humidity ticked up a few notches before I called it a day. On the way home the highway department had the snow plows out clearing the road of flood debris. Fun afternoon! :)
