Something you just don't see or notice everyday, LOL

This was the result of a serious rain storm, located at the bottom of a steep hill were we had camped

X2 on the "what are we looking at".


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

Definitely not obvious. I don't see it either.

Perhaps he thinks the lack of paint on the last three inches of the two post is the result of rain runoff?

Well, there’s a small stream of water coming out of what appears to be electrical conduit.

Probably not uncommon for buried utilities. I know the conduit my house service is run in has water in it cause I can see it when I look down into a corner pull-box location where the conduit comes up above the ground.

It’s fine, it’s all fine! [emoticon]

I see it now...... wasn't obvious at first. That is unusual.

Wonder who drilled the hole in the conduit? (With hot wires inside)

Those conduits most likely terminate a few inches underground and then it's direct buried wire. The sky is not falling. I have seen underground transformer and distribution vaults in downtown Buffalo NY completely full of water up to the sidewalk level access openings.

Yep, that's a small stream for sure. This one was a little more impressive after hurricane Irene in 2011...
