Not to worry, Craig. I read that an hour before your correction and laughed. Thanks.

I know why you came, but what did you see, then conquer?

I'm wondering if you have smoke from the north, and if you've felt any of the great number of earthquakes in the swarm now happening to your south, just a bit north of Topaz Lake. It is the largest swarm I've seen in California. It looks menacing on the map. I wonder if Long Valley Caldera might be getting active.

Have a look at this. Rich

The title had no particular meaning. I saw that you went untitled, so I added one.

I have been in an Old Testament mode here in Nevada (no need for Latin)--earthquakes, fire, drought. The earthquake at Topaz got my attention--long and strong.  The house shook, as did everything in it.   Jake barked at the quake a couple times and it stopped.

No smoke for the fire in Oregon--yet and we still have power.  It has been hot, but the heat has been bearable--not the stuff they have in Vegas.  The fire knocked out a transmission line.  I was doing my bit to conserve electricity by using my battery powered kindle to post a response to your excellent pictures instead of the PC.

I am awaiting the start of the next outbreak of Covid here in Nevada.  Meanwhile, Vegas is raking in the money with some of the biggest months ever in terms of winnings (for the house).

The house next door is up for sale.  The asking price is obscene and the owners will likely get it.  They buyers will no doubt be from California and think they are getting a terrific bargain. The swarms.
