I drove through Granite Dells during the height of the storm. The runoff was all of about 6 inches deep (it takes 2 feet to float a typical vehicle). This was not dangerous to drive through.

The hundreds of drivers on this roadway at the time didn't know about the conditions ahead. All one could do is be patient and pass through slowly & safely.

Just another name-caller that wasn't even at the scene and took the headline too literally.

Moral: Bitterness rots one from within.

That same storm had ping pong ball size hail that hit the Ruger plant and caused a portion of the roof to collapse.

Hundreds of vehicles were damaged and hundreds of people are now out of work temporarily and the Courier doesn't think it merits at least a mention??
