For the love of flopping fish….

Posted: July 22, 2010 in City of Tempe, Silly in AZ

The City of Tempe dodged a big bullet this week, when a rubber dam (yes I said rubber) broke after wear and tear from years in our brutal sun and drained Tempe Town Lake.  No one was near the dam otherwise people would have been killed by the sudden rush of tons of water. 

Unfortunately for the fish, they were left to their own devices.  Too bad some quick thinking individual did not harvest as many as possible right away so that the less fortunate could have had a “fresh catch of the day”.  Of course, the dam manufacturer and the city are pointing fingers at one another.  Just another day in the life of Arizona.
