I’ve chronicled the environmental effect of the Tijuana River Valley flooding over the years, but have never come face-to-face with the flooding’s aftermath until last week.

Adrian Florido and I were headed out with architect Jim Brown to discuss his vision for Friendship Park.

Riding in Brown’s truck, we tried to cross a flooded portion of the valley. Just as someone commented about how the water didn’t seem too deep, we hit a huge dip and the truck shook violently. This was the scene through the windshield.

We made it across, and while Brown’s truck made some real funky sounds for a while, he reports that all is in order.
