Phoenix got the most rain it's ever had in one day. EVER. Over three inches. It seemed like half of that city flooded.
We fared a little better in the Tucson area, but there was plenty of flooding, abandoned cars, some swift water rescues, a lot of people late for work, and a nice dose of mayhem.
I was already at work when the sky opened up and it rained quite heavily for a while. I did grab my camera for a few photos from the dry confines of inside looking out through a window. It always happens that when we get a heavy rain, the building that I work in springs leaks in about a dozen places. If the tv/radio building was the Titanic, it would have sank years ago.
I had a ten year old's take on the storm: Norbert really had to pee (if a storm is capable of such a thing).
