Around 7th Street and Thunderbird road, Phx. Az. This is only an example of the destruction, October 4th and 5th, 2010.
Un-typical weather for October. 50 mile an hour winds and large hail in some parts of the Valley. Downed trees and power lines. One car dealer on the west side lost 80 cars and trucks to hail damage. Flagstaff had tornado's destroy homes, and cut a devastating swath through the Forrest. I have lived in Az since 1959. Never seen anything like this.
Tue evening, some flooding through out the valley. Polo at the YMCA was obviously canceled. So we figured Wed. polo at the sacred grounds, Desert Storm Park, would be canceled too. I walked the field around 2pm Wed. Dry, clean and freshly mowed. A real magical place. We played. 8 players showed up. Three unbelievable games. Each so close, anyone could have beat the other.
