"July 18th 2013. Massive debris flow / flash flood in Southern Utah. Close to 3" of rain fell north of my location and I filmed these shots 6+ hours after the fact. ]"

How did I miss your video till now? What an interesting phenomenon. It reminds me of footage of the Indonesian tsunami. The huge rock rolling along is a bit surreal. The rolling sticks and thick pseudopod like features look almost organic. Thanks, Joan.
Floods are vary powerful. The current flooding in Colorado is moving cars downstream and we are supposed to get more rain tonight. The ground is either burned over or complete saturated so all the rain that falls will go to the rivers.. My aunt, uncle and cousin were all killed in the '76 Big Thompson flood and that high water mark has been surpassed..;
Jim, I am so sorry for your loss to that flood. Are you in danger? I can't even imagine being in such a predicament. There is no way to anticipate and prepare for such conditions. Do take care.
Joan, thanks for your concern.
I and my family are in no danger, although, my brother had some hail damage. I'm in Lakewood and on high ground with no nearby rivers.
