just got a call from a buddy with a place not far from the Chevron station on 89 that was wanting to know if i was available to run up and shovel some mud with him tonight. I guess there is a crap load of it to move.

I was watching the story on the girl that was swept away. I didn't think about it initally in that context (the fire caused it). I don't disagree.

outsider observation here...

all these 'wash' things that you guys have are named for a reason,, are they all pretty much guaranteed to turn into a be-atching flood at least once a year? Is the property risk enough that you should avoid buying a house that backs to one? Would an insurance company demand you purchase a separate flood policy? or is it only really bad when you get into the mountains where the water gains downhill momentum (and volume) really quickly

not when there are trees & vegetation holding the soil down - this is exactly what flooded Tlequpaque last year - runoff from the Brin's Mesa fire. More on the way - it's already raining here this morning {9am} often, if a fire fighter/civilian dies in a fire caused by abandonment, then the perp can be charged with the death caused by thier actions - Steve Garro, Coconino Cycles.

Down in the desert (Phoenix), most homeowners policies will cover monsoon damage from wind and rain EXCEPT when the said rain floods the entire house. You need separate flood coverage. And yes, even in the flatlands the washes run fast.

I would hope the Prosecuting Atorney would at least attempt a manslaughter charge should the rat bastard who caused the fire ever be found ( alive). It is a stretch but I learned long ago actions have consequences.

a crap ton might just be an understatement. Click around in the above article and check the picture of the Chevron. Wasted.

to put a face to it, the very very least she deserves: http://azdailysun.com/news/local/obituaries/article_01b73aec-9da2-5c54-9b0e-7b1e3223524f.html everybody sure they didn't see anything that day? there were likely over 1000 people who went right by these guys burning - Steve Garro, Coconino Cycles.
