    Getting together for drinks might be nice. I was hoping to get in on Saturday the 5th, but I have too much to do for work. I'm planning on going to the Suns/Thunder game on the 6th, and finding some place to watching the college basketball national title game on the 7th. I was also hoping for a Hikenbrunch, but I doubt I'll get in on Sunday with time to do that. Though, I am planning on leaving from Albuquerque on Sunday morning.

    I'll hollaatchasaur via email very soon.

    You know what, regardless of who's playing in the game, that's actually not a bad idea. It would be more fun if it was Arizona playing in the game, though.

    I take that back. It would be more fun if it was New Mexico winning it all against Arizona.

    I'm sure Rick will want to get in on that title-watching game action too.

    my apartment shockingly had no downed trees. but man, stormed early in ahwatukee. got those stupid severe weather alerts starting at 2:45am. thunder was loud, lightning was bright. kinda freaked out the cat. i didn't really sleep. the rain poured. much louder than normal. i guess mountain park church has like 2 million in flooding damage. i worked from home and cancel my physical therapy. rain stopped around 9 or 10 here. if you're gonna be gone awhile, i'd be happy to drive by and peek at the outside.

    They must've drawn God's ire by letting gays onto the premises.

    Old hat for anybody who saw me post on Facebook but there was no decent way east from the west side. Both Jen & I got on the road around 6 (5:55 am, to be precise) and she texted me at 6:39 that she was stuck at 83rd Ave, which is about 4 miles away. I stayed on for another 2 miles after that -- I tried to get off a mile earlier, at 75th, but it took me 20 minutes just to change a single lane and there was a cocksucking semi-truck asshole stopped in the lane between me and the exit, trying to get over himself but being unable to. I just darted ahead of him eventually and got to 67th comparatively quickly (that only took about 10 minutes). I knew McDowell was going to be a mess so I went up to Thomas. From my house (115th Ave/Buckeye) to 67th/Thomas, it took about 90 minutes, and from 67th/Thomas to Central/Thomas, it took nearly another 90 minutes. I heard just about the entire Howard Stern Show, I was on the road for so long. I managed to drive more than 20 mph for the brief stretch after getting off the freeway to McDowell, and then again after 19th Ave. Went from being poised to arriving to work 90 minutes early to being an hour late. If it hadn't been our big payroll week, I would've just stayed home.

    Rick, that sucks. Luckily I woke up, and saw everyone's posts about road closures, I decided to wait it out until the rain stopped. I left my house at 10:30 and it only took 30 minutes to get in. Both freeways going south were closed though, and 7th street had a river running through it. There really wasn't any good way to get anywhere. I just heard there is a sinkhole on Thomas between 83rd ave & 91st ave, so the rain is still causing issues two days later.

    yes, when i leave my back entrance on sundays to turn left, they are constantly turning right and making it difficult for me to leave. at least on the big days they've started directing traffic.

    the problem is that the church is really low. it has two entrances that are really steep downgrades. i once saw a schoolbus stuck on the downgrade. so i imagine all the rain pooled in their church because of that.

    One of my coworkers did the same as you, especially since she has a 7-year-old whose school she wasn't sure would be open. Didn't take her only 30 minutes but then she lives further west than I do. That sucks about the sinkhole on Thomas; I always feel bad for drivers who happen to be on that patch of road when it occurs. Must be terrifying and it's not due to any negligence on their part.

    Your description of 7th St called this to mind:



    Wonder if anybody thought to fly-fish.

    Because of the Super Bowl, I found this article on yahoo:
    https://gma.yahoo.com/see-skip-phoen...ws-travel.html

    See This, Skip That: Phoenix, Arizona

    In many ways, Phoenix is a study in opposites: this is where urban meets desert, where sleek meets rugged and where modern is nestled in history and culture. A downtown boom is set against a backdrop that is both sweeping and breathtaking. And the experiences that Phoenix offers the traveler are as varied as they are endless. Here are a few of our favorite things to do in what’s known as the Gateway to the Grand Canyon.
    Skip the Pub, Sip on the Roof The rooftop garden at the new Hotel Palomar – a Kimpton Hotel has quickly becoming a locals’ favorite watering hole. LUSTRE, located on the third-floor pool deck, features great downtown views. But what keeps them coming back are the premium wines by the glass, the craft beer and the shareable menu of locally-inspired food items. Come Monday through Friday, between 3-6 p.m., for $6 specialty cocktails and flatbreads. Still thirsty? The Bitter & Twisted Cocktail Parlour serves up awesome sippers inside the 10-story brick and stone building that was this city’s first-ever high rise.
    Skip Lunch, Do Tea The Arizona Biltmore is alluring on reputation alone – Hollywood greats like Marilyn Monroe, Spencer Tracy and Steven Spielberg have stayed here. But this deluxe Waldorf-Astoria property, set on 39 lush acres, is also known for its tea. Afternoon high tea in the lobby is a sophisticated treat for the taste buds, with a bevy of finger sandwiches, desserts and pastries to choose from. The Biltmore’s tea sommelier changes the tea menu seasonally and helps guaranteed a truly polished culinary experience. The cost is $45 per person and reservations are recommended.
    Skip Dinner, Cook Your Own Why not use your visit to Phoenix to sharpen your kitchen skills? The instructors at Phoenix BBQ and Grilling School offer a six-hour BBQ cooking class that covers all the basics, and then some: how to cook on charcoal versus gas grills, how to use pellet smokers and how to make rubs and brines. Students prepare a feast of pulled pork, pork tenderloin, beef brisket, chicken, buffalo wings, sweet potatoes and stuffed peppers. And when cooking’s done, they sit down to savor the fruits of their labor. Thirsty? The class is BYOB!
    After Dinner, Catch an Allusion Carnival of Illusion is not your typical theater experience. This Vaudeville-inspired traveling show delivers a sensual experience where magic and mystery get top billing. Show locations change frequently but regularly include the Arizona Biltmore Resort in Phoenix. This very intimate, parlor-inspired experience sells out often so reserve in advance. For audiences 13 years or older.
    Skip the Park, Go Grand Need an easy way to keep the kids busy all day? Water parks do the trick, and there are a handful in this area, including Big Surf and Wet ‘n Wild. But guests of Phoenix’s Arizona Grand Resort don’t have to go anywhere. Exclusive to those staying at this 4-Star property, Oasis Water Park is a seven-acre wet playground, featuring a huge wave pool, a lazy river and a 25-person hot tub. The centerpiece eight-story tower features three waterslides.
    Skip the Movie, Explore Science Want to catch a movie? Head to the Arizona Science Center, home to a five-story IMAX screen! The 280-seat theater features state-of-the-art surround sound and two spectacular, nature-inspired films a day; many are shown in 3-D. You can also catch a show against the NanoSeam dome of the Planetarium. And then stick around; the center also features more than 300 hands-on exhibits.
    Skip Downtown, Go Ghostly If you have time for just one day trip, head east to Goldfield, a ghost town dating back to the 1890s. Located about 35 miles east of Phoenix along the Apache Trail, this is a throwback to the old West. Attractions are affordable: half-hour underground mine tours and narrated train rides around the town on the Superstition Narrow Gauge Railroad each cost $8 ($5 for kids). Shows by the Goldfield Gunfighters, which happen hourly starting every day at high noon, are free. So are strolls down Main Street. Check out the historic museum and the new zipline.
    Skip Phoenix, Do Mesa If you’re looking to stretch your travel dollar while exploring the area, consider Mesa as your home base. Hotel rates in this city, located about 20 miles straight east of Phoenix, can be 45 percent less. And, from here, you can access a bevy of activities, like hot air balloon rides (check out Hot Air Expeditions) and tours of the Grand Canyon (consider top-tier companies Pink Adventure Tours and Across Arizona Tours).

    Need advice from any of you Phoenix peeps that are familiar with Tucson: 1litro will be riding in the 24hrs of Old Pueblo race next week, which is somewhere at the end of Willow Springs Rd north of the 77. I'm coming with, but not to ride. I'll have Saturday to myself, so I'd like suggestions for good day hikes or exploration in the Tucson area; I'll have the car so driving won't be an issue. Since I'd be hiking alone, I'd prefer something well-traveled (Tucson Mountains? Saguaro NP West or East? other suggestions?). Also any suggestions for a cheap but decent place to stay? I don't want to camp at the race venue; there's always lots of noise and commotion and it's not very conducive to sleep.

    i just went to the Tucson desert museum yesterday. it was beautiful. i will post pics and a lin tomorrow. the drive there up gates pass is gorgeous. saguaro everywhere. i saw hiking trails nearby. i have hiked finger rock trail, but only halfway up. it's in the catalinas. it was really hot there yesterday though, so prepare!

    also, if you can get some carne seca at el charro's, do it . the downtown location is one of the oldest mexican food places in the country and the lady who started it was my grandpa's cousin.

    Thanks for the info, Ivy. I wasn't expecting lots of heat in February. Look forward to the pics - the desert museum is also a botanical garden? I love botanical gardens.

    desert museum is different from the botanical gardens. see the link for the desert museum. they do have a lot of plants with signs & tags. today is going to hit a high heat record. i also heard there's a chance of precipitation later this week in southern AZ (incl. tucson). so definitely check the weather

    https://www.desertmuseum.org/

    also, finger rock trail:

    Yeah, this winter hasn't been much of a winter. It's suppose to be in the 80's all week again. Hopefully that isn't a sign of an extra hot summer. :-/
