That’s flooding along the wash that goes behind my apartment complex. Now, to an extent, this is a good thing. Washes are there for just this purpose. That said, yeesh. Here’re some more pics. With all images, click to embiggen.

But I don’t just have pics for you! No, sir. Here are some videos, too!

So, yeah. When it rains…it floods.
