We're trapped in a ghost town in New Mexico with 18 other people.
Will the spirits of the dead reveal themselves to us before I get kicked in the nuts repeatedly by the living?

Albuquerque had 4 days straight of rain, localized flooding and we are only just at the average yearly rainfall. That's how bad the drought has been.

The kids and I were up in the mountains camping and I wasn't sure we'd make it back without getting stuck. We had to drive through a couple of areas where the highway was covered with 1-2 feet of water. A lot for an Accord to wade through. And this was just outside ABQ. The folks down south got it worse obviously.

I get the feeling there are more than several places you could say that about, but good on you!

Yknow, if it doesn't get much worse than being stuck there a couple of days but with adequate supplies, it could almost be fun. No harm done and a story for later.

Movie rights, more likely. Slow-building scares with a few hints of CGI work in the driving rain. Sounds like a winner!

Living in the village of Los Lunasa, just south of ABQ, I can see how people are stuck, not like those Colorado whiners.Thyen again, there's nothing here but meth to pass the time.

Wonder if the Catwalk Trail near there held up.

In New Mexico there are many places where the roads overflow during a rain event but there no culverts. Someone eventually comes around with a road grader or plow and scrapes the rocks, sand and debris off to the side until the next time.

I was there in May, only 25% of the catwalk was open then - it was damaged during flooding about 4 years ago.

I was up in the Gil National Forest for the weekend, he is not exaggerating. New Mexico has experienced record-breaking floods and rainfall this month and especially this past week.  I was at the Gila Cliff Dwellings half an hour after the road to the visitors center was washed out, stranding several visitors. In Glenwood, mere miles from the Mogollon Road, the Rio San Fransisco was running almost at its banks, high and muddy. Highways all over the state have been closed or are closed. New Mexico mountain and watershed highways tend to pass right across low-water crossings and when big rains hit, this is what happens. Add to that the fact that these areas are in the middle of wildfire burn scars and you have the right conditions for epic deluges.

Either I'm missing something or the article is. Why can't those who are "trapped" walk a mile to save themselves? Are they disabled or something?

New Mexico is the setting for Breaking Bad. What a coincidence.

We got eight inches at my house which is 70% of our yearly total in five days.

For the record, that eight inches in five days was more rain than we had in all of 2009, and one inch less than what we had in all of 2010 & 11, and two inches less than the yearly total in 2012. My house didn't flood but my neighbors did.

But I'll take it. Never complain about water in NM. Ever. Water is life.

Conveniently enough, there's currently an unsolved serial murder case in Albuquerque, the West Mesa Bone Collector. He stopped depositing bodies on the West Mesa several years ago, a few years before the 11 bodies were found (after making a deposit pretty regularly for a while), and the going theory is that he either died or moved... Hell, this thing practically writes itself.
