earlier this week, on tuesday night just before 10, one
of the rubber bladders of tempe's town lake dam
broke; as quickly as a billion gallons of water could flow
through the gap - surprising not long at all - the lake
drained leaving a strange sight that tempe-ans have
not seen in the 10 years since the lake was created and filled.
luckily, no one was boating or recreating at that hour and
there were no injuries.
lots of attention is centered on the future at the lake and
the current situation - smell (which I didn't find to be that bad);
the potential for mosquitoes to breed in the abundant
puddles and pools of standing water; and quite a lot
of dead fish; this morning, tuesday the alligator was
a star attraction, having been brought in to eat of few of
the dead fish, and she seemed happy to oblige.

the sail inn is a great place for live music in tempe.
the sugarthieves play blues on wednesdays and
the grateful dead cover, the noodles, play sundays.
there are some good bands lined up to play this
summer. the sail inn has two stages, one inside
and one outside.

dos gringos trailer park restaurant at
1001 E. 8th street. when I was a student at ASU,
8th street was my designated parking area, not too
far to walk to campus and best of all - free. that was
before the trailer park bar and numerous condos
sprung up. it's still an option for free parking - but now
students can have a cold one after the walk to the car.

the weather in tempe is so absolutely fabulous in
the spring. this new stretch along the salt river
corridor just east of tempe lake (rural to mcclintock)
was recently opened with a bike/jogging path. the flowers
on the slope are a dazzling mix of purple and gold.

there were all kinds of things going on in Tempe last
weekend, a photographer or outdoor enthusiast's feast;
dragon boat races were underway on the north side of the
lake and I'll show other happenings throughout the week.

i'm glad to see these count-down signals
more and more. so much more useful
to know how much time you have to
cross the street, or as a driver to know
how long before the light will change. my
all time favorite cross signals (seen in oaxaca)
combined a visual count down with an audible
count down that sounded like bird tweets.
