Yes, you did just read that title. Follow the link for the sexiest flood film I’ve ever seen. Is it the music? The split screens? The way the trees slowly give way to the floodwaters? I don’t actually have a destruction fetish, so I dunno, but it’s quite a seductive little movie.

I know, it’s in Oregon, not Los Angeles. But following the razing of the oak woodland in Arcadia, expect more and then more commentary, visual and historical reflection, etc on the value of functioning floodplains, sediment transport and our flood control system.

Exhibit A: road vs. river at flood stage. Guess who’s taking back some floodplain?

Thanks to E. Stromberg for forwarding the link.
