Technical Difficulties: Day Five

Posted By on Mon, Jul 31, 2006 at 8:18 AM

OK, this whole "Tucson gone Seattle" thing was cute when it started. Now, it's getting freaky. Weekly Publisher Tom Lee reports that his northeast-side health club was evacuated this morning when a nearby wash began spilling over its banks. Rescue operations and closed intersections are a dime a dozen. The National Weather Service says the airport got nearly two inches of rain overnight. If my math's correct, that puts the airport OVER year-to-date normal precipitation by about an inch.

And on a personal note, the newly re-roofed Weekly southcentral bureau (aka my house) had EIGHT leaks (thankfully, all on the periphery) during the storm early Saturday morning. All I'll say is this: expletives were a flyin'.

Seriously ... be careful out there.
