El Paso Floods

August 2nd, 2006 · 1 Comment · Texas


We passed through El Paso yesterday during a flash flood. The I-10 was closed down to one lane, routed onto the shoulder.


We held our breath while we made the crossing: the water was up to our wheel-wells.


The guy in the white mercedes wasn’t so lucky — we last saw him standing hip-deep outside his submerged car, water pouring onto the leather seats, hollering into his mobile phone.

Today, we are safely in Dallas, leg two of our nearly cross-country move completed.
