Last Week

This homeless man was swept away by a flash flood .  Scenes like this one are common in the southwest around this time of year.  The runoff from the Sandia mountains to the east of the city can carry a tremendous amount of water at fast speed, often catching kids playing in the nearby arroyos where it may appear dry some miles away.

This man was lucky to have survived  due to the quick action of the citizens seen on the right who saw the him get swept away.

 A news crew shot this photo of me as I stepped away from the scene.

Albuquerque Police officers as well as SWAT members rush a house to arrest a man who was believed to be brandishing a weapon in the southeast quadrant of the city.
