These photos are of our backyard, the ditch behind our house was creeping into our yard. None of the water goto very close to our house, it would've had to have rained alot for it to get up to our house.
This above photo is our neighbors yard, it did get a little closer than that to their doorstep in the back! They had some over grown stuff at their drainage ditch so the water was backing up, it didn't help that the creek it runs into was full. We were all out there that morning trying to make sure it started draining properly. The below photo is of their yard also.
For us Native Arizonans this was a lot of rain, it all happened in one night too. We went to bed Friday night and there was no rain or water and we woke to all that, CRAZY! This was back in May.
