We had an amazing rainstorm the other day here in AZ. No big deal to most folks, but I literally had not seen rain in daylight hours in about 7 or 8 months at least. It was wonderful. The problem with living in the desert, though, is that we have arroyos (washes) that fill up quite quickly because the hard-baked ground will not absorb the water. For some reason, we have no storm drains to speak of. In fact, the roads are pitched to be high in the center, low on the sides, so if you're in the slow lane, you're SOL.
There is also something very necessary here that makes other states laugh. We have a Stupid Motorist Law. This basically says, if you try to cross a running wash and get stuck in your car, you have to pay the fees associated with hauling your ass out.
Don't you wish we had more stupid laws?
Which stupid law would you like to see on the books for your state?
