Hi Everyone,

Couldn't find the page Leo was referring to (yes, I was on Firefox).  

I agree I haven't seen rain as steady and as long as the storm lasted at my house.  Grateful that the wind was only 3 to 6 mph when the storm hit. 
I measured the rain in my rain gauge just now and it had rained 4 inches at my house.   I am about 15 miles northwest of Leo's house.

Caught some rainwater so I am out on my lunch trying to water everything that didn't get wet earlier.

Subject: [pbs] Today's storm

Some of you may have heard we in Phoenix experienced our all-time record 
rainfall in 24
hours by 6 am local time today (3 inches / 7.5cm at Phoenix Sky Harbor 
Airport.) I had almost 4 inches / 10cm of rain in my rain gauge at 7 am. On my 
way to
work I found all freeways and most major surface streets were shut due to 
water, and I was notified that the place I was to work today was not open due to 
central computer system losing power.

A person I know walked around the neighborhood and took a number of photos with 
a cheap
mobile phone.…
