This past weekend we experienced yet another storm. It was CRAZY!!! On Saturday we were over at the Maricopa County Home & Garden Show (because that is what you do for fun when you are married). It was held at the state fairgrounds. We had made it through one of (at least) four buildings and were just getting ready to head into building two when the storm began. First the electricity went out. Then came the rain.
It rained HARD! And the wind blew like crazy! The rain was coming down sideways. The roof started leaking. We saw one guy that got caught in the storm for a few minutes and would have totally won a wet t-shirt contest had there been one.
Once the wind quit blowing so hard we made a run for it over to the second building. We were there right? What else were we to do?
We made it into the second building where the flooding waters seemed to get worse.
So this booth....The artificial grass was claiming to soak up less water than other types...After this rain, none of them were holding much of anything!
After two buildings we called it quits and headed back to the car.
On our drive home we saw quite a bit of damage. A power pole fell into someone's second story window and broke their window. Some of the streets were flooded, many of the street lights weren't working.
I was so glad we made it home safe! We had no idea it was supposed to rain so hard.
We enjoyed the show. Nicole Curtis from Rehab Addict was supposed to be there, but we didn't make it far enough to see her. We did get 12 fancy light bulbs which was by far more than the price of admission.
Hopefully all the damage wasn't as bad as it seemed. I wonder how many more storms we will be getting? Who knew we would get this much rain in the desert??
Sunday we spent some time at Mesa Riverview (a pretty typical Sunday afternoon for us). It seemed busier than usual. Here people are scouting out parking spots. They are turning for at least the second time to wait for people to leave. Crazy vultures.
Let's not forget this is a FREE park. Like, let's go play at the playground for a little bit, park. We thought it was amusing and had to share.
That's all I've got for now. Have a great week!
