Okay, let me see if I got this right.   If I see tons of muddy water pouring out of this area pushing logs, rocks and small cars along in front of it, I'm not supposed to try and enter?


Thanks, Summerlin Master Planners - without you I probably would have drowned years ago.

Furst., murst and Purst!

They have to post that sign. Because when we get a big desert rain like we always do stupid people die and that sign could cut the jury award by several million dollars.

Risk mitigation.

They know stupid people will die they just want to minimize what it costs them.

I'd love to spray paint "No Shit Sherlock!" on that sign though.

I know flash-flooding.   I lived in Tucson for 20 years and we got a lot more storms and floods there in one year than I've seen here in three.

And I agree with your point - that the signs serve to mitigate whatever litigious vengeance may be visited upon the developers of the "parks".

But still... I just can't fathom the level of stupidity needed to believe that it might be a good idea to go sit in the "greenbelt" when there are massive black clouds off to the west, ominous thunder, ragged winds and the occasional too-close-for-comfort lightning strike.

I say, take the signs down in the hopes that these people will be eliminated before they have a chance to reproduce.

Improving the gene pool in the method to which you recommend is very litigious.

But personally I wouldn't have a large problem with it.

Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.

Dedicated to the other side of Las Vegas, namely; the sprawling, mad, incoherent underpinnings of the world's favorite destination.

That, and the occasional ranting about nothing in particular.
