flooding info- edited- map of detour
http://www.85239.com/news/detail.cfm?id=5048 this shows some pictures of the water- not great without a basis for comparison, but 5 feet of water where there wasn't any just a couple days ago is pretty impressive! http://www.cityofmaricopa.net/chopper-web/ch7-big.JPG this is an arial shot of the (award-winning) 55+ community, Province... you can see the dry wash on the right side of the shot- http://www.cityofmaricopa.net/floodmap.html this is the map showing the detour we have to take... the stretches of "red" mark the main road to/from town; the green and red dashed lines show the (very long!) detours!
