    I am over at tatum and jomax....tatum north of pinnacle peak pretty much almost flooded out. Was lucky to get home before it got much worse.

    Right now, its clear skies and sunny. We shall see how much more rain we get....

    If I had my dirt bike I'd go rip through that stuff. I'll go to PMP for a little mtb ride instead, it should be perfect.

    This was along the greenbelt yesterday afternoon.

    im so glad i'm at the top of the hill... although the intensity wasn't as hard as the aug 30th storm, today's lasted a lot longer and still rutted out my front yard.
    i have never visited the bottom of my street during a big storm, but the old guy who lives across from the bottom is always out detailing his rocks with a shop-vac..

    i wanted to go riding right afterwards but i wasnt finished with work. it looked so fun up there...

    Wife and I went to see "We're the Millers" at the AMC Deer Valley 30 at 10:30 this morning. It was raining just a little when we walked into the movie.
    35th ave was flooded from Unionhills to Bell, pretty clear from Bell to Greenway, REALLY flooded from Greenway to Thunderbird, and clear again from Thunderbird to Sweetwater.
    BTW, the movie was freaken hilarious! Even my wife laughed

    Took a ride around the Gold Canyon trails tonight, high water mark in some of the washes was 4 feet above the bottom of the wash. It must have been quite a sight yesterday at the height of the storm! Trails took a beating, gonna be plenty of work this winter.

    How did the fall line section of Gila Monster hold up? How about To GM, Diamond Back and Mojave were they heavily eroded? How about the jeep roads that those three trails replaced how are they holding up?

    When I die, I want to come back as your bottom bracket.

    Not serious.

    excellent photos !

    I am no expert but I think avoiding full saturation of your hubs and bottom bracket would be preferred... I think...
