[Comments] (3) Flash! Floo-od! You'll kill ev'ry one of us!: One of my irrational fears is flash floods (irrational not because flash floods are not dangerous but because I never go anywhere they occur). One minute you're hiking along a gully with your camping stove and the next you're under twenty feet of water like in O Brother, Where Art Thou?. That's how it works in my imagination anyway. Today's Earth Sciences Picture of the Day is a chilling close-up glimpse at a flash flood in the offing. ESPOD, by the way, is the best companion I've so far found to the venerable APOD.

Man, if only the power of flash floods could be turned to some useful purpose. Like setting up encounters between flash floods and flash mobs.

Apparently, all of Utah is a flash flood area, including the valley we drove through to Park City the last time you visited.

Correction: I think it was the time before.

Actually both times, because that's how I came down from Wyoming.

Now I'll never be able to go through that valley again! Man! It's scary enough without FLASH FLOODS!
