I was going to call this "An Update," but I realized that just about everything is an update, so I'll just figure something out.

Talking About the Weather Again

The weather here is good now, but we had days of torrential downpours steady rains that saturated the soils and caused some massive flooding and flash flooding. The Rio Salado (rhymes with Salt River) threatened to reclaim its basin from Tempe Town Lake, the south runway at Sky Harbor (rhymes with PHX) and various developments built on the floodplain. Anyway, things have returned to normal in town, and people are organizing to rebuild in various mountain valleys where streams used to run free. Many reservoirs in the area were threatened by the unusual rains, and many experienced incredible rises in water levels.
