Doesn’t rain much here…. but when it does, it rains seriously hard. Over the last few days, some places in Utah/Nevada got several inches in a day – a 1000 year event. You can’t drive from SLC to Las Vegas right now without a major detour, since I-15 is wahed out in some places.

When it does rain, the ground can’t absorb it all (since the ground is basically rock), and so you get spectacular temporary waterfalls:
