    Default New Mexico Is Flooding!!!

    So we have gone from years of severe drought to this just this week. It has not stopped raining since Tuesday. I had 4 inches of rain yesterday morning which is a lot of rain for New Mexico. We are experiencing flooding everywhere. Albuquerque is now worried about possible flooding from the Rio Grande. You only hear about Colorado on the news but the same thing is going on here.

    Yesterday we were the 8th wettest September on record. This morning we are the wettest on record. Had a storm come through last night that for the first time in abut 20 years of living here, scared me half to death!

    The weather is crazy right now. The bad thing about all this rain around here are after the severe drought and fires.....Erosion, mudslides, and flooding are rampant.

    Yes, we are having that issue here with all the fires we had and I was actually worried about a mud slide or raging river coming down the hill behind my house. I was here alone and this storm hit about 11:15 pm and continued until about midnight. The thunder and lightning was pretty much like nothing I have ever seen (and we get it bad here) and the torrential rains I have experienced before but not like this after almost a week of heavy rain. My cat went crazy and even the dog who usually does not get upset by storms was getting very agitated. The Rio Grande in Albuquerque nearly flooded yesterday.

    We had rain yesterday that turned the streets into rivers and this being a city with all the modern ways to handle water run off? It was crazy. Water was covering neighborhood lawns all the way to the steps of the house.

    Yes, that is what is happening in Albuquerque. Where I live we don't have sidewalks and not even a lot of paved roads but because it is hilly here, it is running somewhere. The low lying parts down in the actual town though have lakes just from last Tuesday. Can't imagine what they look like now!

    Parts of NM brace for more rain, clean up begins

    It has already rained several times here at my house today and looks like more is coming but I really cannot complain, although I am not in a flooded area.
    (AP) ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Another round of rainfall moved across New Mexico on Sunday, renewing the threat of heavy runoff from already saturated soils and flooding in low areas as residents faced a major cleanup effort from damage left in the wake of days of relentless rain.

    The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for much of central and northern New Mexico. In the northeastern corner of the state, where the chance for heavy rain was greatest, residents along the Gallinas River were warned that the waterway could swell again.

    "As long as you get the right thunderstorm right over your area, I wouldn’t be surprised if more records are broken as far as one-day rainfall totals because we still have that abundant moisture in the area," said Jason Frazier, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Albuquerque.

    For a state that has been in the grasp of an unprecedented drought, numerous records have fallen in the past week as floodwaters have broken through dams, inundating neighborhoods and leaving behind muddy swaths of debris.

    Some areas received close to 10 inches of rain since the deluge started Tuesday. Parts of Albuquerque have seen more than 4 inches, marking the wettest September on record for the city.

    Thanks! We are enjoying the rain very much. Had several more downpours today. But I feel sorry for many people in our state and Colorado who's homes are destroyed and who have lost loved ones. Very tragic.

    I hope things calm down soon. Back when Sandy hit; I used to know someone that lived there; she said aside from the fires; NM was pretty "safe" from natural disasters. I tried telling her that everyone's weather has been changing but she still doubted NM would see any. I think she jinxed you guys.
