These pictures were taken on Christmas Eve . . .
We got up and opened our presents to each other and then decided to go to the mall to do a little more shopping . . . why we decided to go to the mall on Christmas Eve I will never know . . . I'm crazy. I knew the mall would be pretty crazy, but what I didn't know was that all the rain we had been getting was causing extreme flooding. I called my mom to ask her something when we were almost there, and she told me that the roads were supposed to be bad, so we started listening to the radio. They said there was water over the freeway and it was slow going, but we decided to keep going because we assumed the road would be closed if it was really bad . . . Not true . . .
This is the first picture I took as we started to see all the flooding on the service road
This was my view out my window . . . I felt like I was in a boat . . .
I don't know why we didn't get in the other lane . . . almost no one was driving in the right lane, but I don't know that the left one was much better . . . You can barely even see the lines on the road
The service road was closed and completely flooded. Some how people were still driving on 67/167, but I don't know why. Once we saw how bad it was, there was no where to turn around. I was really scared while we were driving through it, but somehow we made it. These are the best pictures I have, but they weren't even in the worst parts.
