You, my friend, are something else.
Shit loads of rain in Denver as well. Just barely got my Subaru off the curb only about 10 minutes after it started raining a couple of days back because in that short time, it was about to take water coming down the street into the engine. Sidewalk was underwater. Water in the street was out to the crown and higher. I found a parking lot at a school nearby that had a ramp up into it and higher. I ran home 2 blocks in the deluge and by the time I got back home, Denver Fire Department had arrived on the scene about 1 block from my house and the biggest fire engine they had was dead in the water and even it could not handle the depth. It was freaky.
