 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.

  1. First of all, can I say that I am tired of proving that I am not a robot?! Ugh! Anyways, this does not look fun to me, but glad you were able to see where you do get water during a heavy rain. It is going to be a pain when a hurricane is out in the Gulf and you have multiple days of inches of rain...but now you can see where/what you will need to do before you have that problem...which is good for preparation sake! It looks as if this summer's season will be a mild one! Hopefully, it stays that way.
