Starting around 1:30 am, a strong monsoon rolled through the Phoenix area causing severe flooding all around. Here are a few pics of the green belt behind our home.
Here’s a shot of the I-10 in the West Valley.
The first Maker Faire – Phoenix is happening on the 15th of October. Definitely want to check this out.
An update and reminder:
This Sunday there is a Lymphoma walk for life at the Phoenix Zoo-we have a team link below- Join our team at the zoo and show your support in finding a cure. Even if you cannot contribute, join the free walk and enjoy the free passes to the Zoo after the walk, as well as sharing time with friends and family!
The Lymphomathon registration opens at 7:00 am and the walk starts at 8:00 am. You will be given a wrist band for the Zoo. This wrist band will allow you back into the zoo after it opens at 9 a.m. As long as you have the wrist band, you can come and go into the Zoo throughout the day.
Please share this with anyone you know would like to join our walk.
Join hundreds of survivors and caregivers as they walk to raise funds and awareness for the Lymphoma Research Foundation!
The Lymphomathon is a non-competitive 5K walk where survivors, family, friends, community and corporate teams walk in honor and in memory of those whose lives have been touched by lymphoma. Funds raised by participants will support the Foundation’s mission of eradicating lymphoma and serving those touched by this disease.
Please take time to come out and walk with us, or make a donation to the LRF to help the fight against cancer.
You can sign up for the event at www.lymphomathon.org/arizona2010
This year, I’ve been asked to be the photographer for the event. I’m humbled to have been asked, and excited for the opportunity to support this important cause.
I’ve enlisted the help of my sister-in-law, Sylvia and, the other half of the runoff, Austin, to help me.
Rain in Arizona is a significant, emotional event. Similar to the excessive heat experienced in L.A. a few days back, when we desert rats are bombarded with persistent rain, we tend to freak out.
Today is one of those days. I went for a walk around my office building and misjudged just how fast this storm from was moving.
It made the last hour of work pretty uncomfortable.
