Re: WB US60 to close in Tempe

So apparently they made the ramp to east(south)bound I-10 two lanes. So now (left to right as traffic moves) the HOV lane goes to PHX, the next lane goes to Tucson, the next lane splits allowing cars to go to either Tucson or PHX, the next two go to PHX, and the far right exits at Priest. The ramp i...

Re: 2018 Fire Restrictions

And finally... the two remaining holdouts: all of Apache-Sitgreaves and the North Kaibab district too. Effective today.

Re: Blood Donation?

your body replaces all the blood over about a 3 month period, so over 2 weeks, it would only regenerate about 1/6th of what you donated That might be true if the replenishing happened on a linear scale, but I doubt that it does. Here's a good article addressing the question that I found online: htt...

Re: Havasupai Flash Flood July 2018

The USGS Stream Gauge shows that the first flood around 7pm last night reached about 800cfs, and the second flood overnight reached about 1700cfs. The regular flow is 65cfs, and it has returned to near that level today. For reference, the flood in August 2008 that altered the course of the creek and...

Re: Blood Donation?

Well athletes use blood for doping purposes to increase performance, so removing blood will almost certainly affect performance. How long does it take the body to replenish the supply of donated blood? I'm not sure. Two weeks seems to be a long time for it to still be an issue, but I'm no doctor. It...

Re: Havasupai Flash Flood July 2018

Apparently they expect to be closed only 7-10 days, so hopefully the damage isn't too extreme. It says that the creek rose 7 feet last evening and the campground was evacuated. There was a second flood that came through around 3am. The second one was preceded by a Flash Flood warning issued by the N...

Havasupai Flash Flood July 2018

A flash flood last night caused helicopter evacuations for all visitors. The campground is closed until further notice. The road to the Hilltop has been damaged by debris flows and is closed.

I updated the original post with links to the various announcements this week. The basics: • Coconino has removed all closures and restrictions. • Tonto has opened closed areas, Stage 1 remains in effect forest-wide. • Kaibab has opened closed areas and removed all restrictions on the Williams and T...

Re: Forests of the Mule Mountains

Hi Fred- I've never hiked in the Mules, but there are a few trips posted by hikers here on HAZ. Of those, several have photos of their hikes. Even zooming in on some of the most promising seems to show only juniper pinyon. Though I wouldn't rule out a small pocket of ponderosa in the north-facing dr...

Re: Access to Lava River Cave from I-40 / FR171

@hikeaz It’s the kids these days who are used to maps automatically turning the direction they’re going in. A concept I will never understand. But it makes that whole North is up thing irrelevant to them. It may take some time for me to acknowledge my magnetic privilege to the new generation of car...

With .80 today, I’m up to 1.35” over two days. Tomorrow still has a good chance to add to it too, but I don’t think monsoon rains have ever happened 3 days in a row at my house before.

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

@rwstorm These past couple of days have been very atypical of the monsoon. Really more developed disturbances that pass through than heat-of-the-day storms. It’s certainly unusual for the western deserts to get this kind of activity over 2 or 3 days, or for a thunderstorm complex to fire in the Maz...

Under the old dew point rule, tomorrow will be the 3rd day of qualifying dew points in both Phoenix (55°) and Tucson (54°), making Sunday, July 8th the start of the monsoon in both cities for 2018. This is one day earlier than the climatological average for both cities. The arbitrary June 15 date be...
