Big powerful system. It WILL rain and as has been discussed many times, sandstone needs to dry out after it gets wet. Unfortunately looks to be statewide. cdec

If you're serious, you should know that if you try to call 911 your cell phone probably won't hit a tower there

Perfect plan B, slot canyoning in the rain.
By the way it's Potash Road.

So since everyone seems to think these flash flood things are a risk (dont they only occur on the full moon anyway?) what sort of PFD should I bring to help protect myself? Ben Coyle

If you want to keep the troll going, you should quickly change PFD to Life Preserver. Much more believable. Andrew Gram
