Las Vegas, NV - Pouring Rain
This picture is from the news station here in Las Vegas. They said that 50 people needed to be rescued.
Well! What an experience this was today. We’re at the Road Runner RV Park. Had some rain this morning but it was mostly just a long ride.
Vet appointment at 2:00. At 1:15 it started to rain. But it didn’t just rain, it RAINED!!!!!! I have never seen the water run like it did today. They said on the news tonight that they had over 2” of rain in less than two hours. It was incredible. I was certainly happy we had the high clearance vehicle. The streets were flooded and people were getting stranded in their cars. It was coming down so hard you couldn’t see which lane you were in or what the street signs said.
We left for the Vet’s just as it was starting to rain. Should have taken us about 20/25 minutes. At 2:00 I called the vet’s office and told them we were trying to get there. Took us over an hour. Because of the RAIN!!!
Scooter’s back is better today unless she happens to twist the wrong way. She is on an anti-inflammatory, a muscle relaxant, and a pain pill for the next week with restricted movement. Back issues are a problem for doxies with their long spines. They also have very shallow joint sockets which can cause more problems.
The rain has moved on and tomorrow morning, so will we.
Hope that this treatment gets things back to normal for Scooter.ReplyDelete
Good news about Scooter. Thanks for the update.ReplyDelete
Be careful about driving in heavy rain. Those puddles can be deep enough to float your car.

So glad to hear about Scooter. I hold my breath whenever I hear about any pup having a problem. Hopefully she keeps on improving.ReplyDelete
Rich and I were in Las Vegas when it rained like that one year--it's actually very unusual from what we were told. There were several people killed (two in a motorhome that was right ahead of us) when a flash flood occurred. It was a very scary situation. I'm glad you are safe.
Again, happy about Scooter.
Glad to hear that Scooter is doing better. Stay safe and dry.ReplyDelete
See, I knew you should have a boat with you as you travel!! Glad Skooter's problems aren't permanent...1ReplyDelete
Glad to hear Scooter is better. We had a little rain but it was light rain. We know how those storms can be though. The problem is some of the drivers don't realize it and that can be scary.ReplyDelete
Looks like someone in Vegas is not going to get their foreclosure notice:)ReplyDelete
Hope you have lots of treats on hand to go with the meds. Makes 'em go down easier!ReplyDelete
Here in Utah a local apologized for the weather. It didn't seem bad for us eastern folk, but it was unusual for the Southwest.ReplyDelete

Neither rain nor snow nor dark of night will keep the postman from his appointed rounds, but it doesn't say anything about floods, eh?
