What is amazing to me is that it seems like only 2" of rain +/- caused all this devastation. Ultimately as I understand it, it has been a cool spring and much of the snow still hadn't melted...there was even some recent snow. But it looks to be the rain that fell on the snow caused a very quick melt-off which caused this. Here in Marin, we get 2" of rain all the time...heck, we've gotten 6-8" a few times, and last fall we got something like 9.5" in 24 hours. But I guess they just don't get that kind of rain in Yellowstone.
