Tempe Towne Lake is Empty

Well in "local" news Tempe Town Lake is now empty as one of four rubber dams tore and caused the lake to drain.  You read right, a rubber dam.  There are hopes that a new dam structure will be in place and the lake refilled by early November so as to not impact the lakes biggest event, the Ironman.  I hope they have it fixed in time as it would be terrible to train the whole summer and then not have a lake to swim in.  I wonder if the race directors ever took into consideration that the lake just might not be there from one year to the next.

  1. Maybe they won't have it and they'll let me defer to next year without getting dinged!
