Since '92, when we built here, we've seen a couple 5"-6" duck drowners. When that happens, the usually dry washes run about 4'+ deep. If you're home you stay home. If you're out...get a motel cuz ya ain't crossing those washes. They're pretty narrow and the water gets swift real fast. I tried it once in an F350 4WD. When I felt the front wheels slipping sideways, I backed out in a hurry. 

It'll usually run deep for 6 to 8 hrs or so. Depends on how much rain they're getting upstream. 

Nowadays, we say let 'er rain. Nothings too important that can't wait a couple days.
