An interesting thing about a raging flash flood is how quiet it is, for the most part. Sometimes you’ll hear a pinyon log sort of bonk against a boulder, but the silt and the mud absorbs most of the sound. Sometimes, you feel a rumble from the ground below, a pleasing sort of rumble. Like it’s far away, a distant freight train. But it’s right there, ready to pull you down to the Underworld.
