Around 1:45 p.m. Wednesday, over two inches of rain fell in less
than one-and-a-half hours causing flooding across Rim Country. On
Houston Mesa Road, storm runoff from the area north of Shoofly,
filled washes with both muddy water and debris that included logs.
The logs clogged the large culvert crossing Houston Mesa Road, just
south of Wonder Valley, stopping traffic in both directions for
nearly an hour. As the water receded, Bill Allred brought a
front-end loader and cleared the debris from the roadway.
