Flash Flood...


Normally trickling streams can quickly become raging rivers when heavy rains can't penetrate already saturated ground. My good friend in elementary school had an older brother who died when he was playing in a relatively dry canal and a flash flood came down without warning from mountain rains and swept him down the canal where he was pinned against a metal grate and drowned. Koa is always afraid of flash floods when the warning comes on the television even though we live twenty-five floors up. I keep him worried for a reason so he will never forget. No matter where he is when it rains. It may save his life one day...
