Norbert caused flooding in Tucson and especially in Phoenix, we were supposed to get a historic rain event thanks to Odile but that storm turned east about 60 miles south of Tucson, and Simon gave us some surprise rain.
I have rarely seen standing water in the ditches along the west side of Ridgepointe but there was some on Thursday. You have to remember that I live in the desert and seeing standing water anywhere besides my bathtub or in a swimming pool is a bit of an event.
Fortunately, the puddles didn't stay long enough for mosquitos to share any West Nile virus, ebola, SARS, or bird flu.

braved walking across the wet surface.
Fortunately a swift water rescue wasn't required.

home from work on Thursday.
