A Disaster Area

The City is looking for help from the state to clean up from the massive amount of rain we had over the last week. Mother Nature doesn’t let dirt roads stand in the way of it’s canal (arroyo) making, in fact they make easy targets. I can understand that people are upset about this but their expectation are a bit out of whack.

“We are very, very frustrated with the city that they allowed us to build here. We are a drainage focal point for about two or three miles up.”

I can’t totally blame the city for their problems, when you live in an area with dirt roads and no storm drains you have to expect this to happen. Rain is pretty scarce in the desert but the effects of heavy rain are known to make noticeable changes to the terrain. They should have planned better for it.
