Taken on a walk earlier.
We got 3.something here in Gilbert, too, but Tempe and Chandler each got over 5 inches.
You can see what even 3 inches can do to our run-off areas. This used to be a wide open area with a walking path. Now it's a swamp complete with swimming kids.
And here's the other direction....
A church field turned into a lake.

They actually reported 5" in Chandler. I've lived in Arizona since 1967 (except for 3 years in the Army) and never experienced anything like it. They say it's the wettest day in Phoenix since they started keeping records in 1895.
I've been waiting for that one big storm of the year that ushers in the colder weather. I'm more than a little annoyed it happened at night.
