I woke up to the sound of commotion. My next door neighbor's condo was flooded. Greg and I quickly checked our condo for leaks. There was a small damp area in the dining room. But the back patio area looked like a river. It was almost up to the Arcadia door. My front patio was covered in water.
I went outside to see if I could help and was greeted by several other neighbors. Their condos were completely flooded too. All of our units are on the ground floor but our elevation is slightly higher.
Many of the schools in our area were cancelled as the roads were treacherous. I had two choices to get to work. The freeway was closed before my exit and the back roads had many washes. Greg didn't want me to chance it in our car. So I stayed home.
It was quite a day for those of us in Phoenix. Hopefully, tomorrow will return to normal. I look forward to returning to work and seeing the faces of the children.
Blessings and love,
