One year, one month and two days ago, Gilbert was inundated by flood waters. It has happened again. Not quite as deep, but still has done plenty of damage. Our corner was coverd again and got into the house, but minimally. The units are ok but the lot has to have a thorough cleaning. Watch the area news for more information on this latest flooding.

Can the Great PL please get a break Exclamation

Seems since the last flooding there's not much top soil or new underbrush left in the hollows to hold back any great amounts of water.

Between the winter snows and spring rains it doesnt leave much for ground stability. Sorry to hear about the flooding again.

I would like to move far away. . .so far that it would take a twenty-three pound postage stamp to mail me a letter. And as I type. . .more downpours. The red variety on the radar screen!

Understandably...
I can't imagine how sick and tired you must be of seeing of mud and water.
Keeping you and your community in our thoughts in prayers.

Not sure of the dates in early 2000's or '90's, but '88, '82, '77, '72, '63, and '57 are memorable. I moved onto this corner in 1990 and have had at least 6 issues since then.

I think I read somewhere that Logan had been flooded 24 times in the last 40 years?

With that history, sounds like there isn't much you can do to prevent it. Just at the mercy of mother nature I guess.
