Pointless Arrow

A Lot Can Happen in a Week

You may recall that we had a late-season snowstorm here on Monday. The 15 cm on the ground here at Fernley was nothing compared to what Reno/Sparks got, causing massive traffic problems. Oddly enough, apparently there was very little snowfall in the Sierra Nevada to the west of us. The storm sneaked around the Sierra somehow.

Three days after the storm, few signs of of the snow remain on the ground here, and much of the snow on the surrounding hills is gone as well. The weather has turned sunny and warmer, and I took the opportunity to take pictures of both of Thursday's "people trains."

Fortunately, the quick melt has not triggered any flooding other than some very large puddles in some low-lying areas.
Confusion Ahead

No Foolin

I sometimes itch to write an April Fool post about things with which I'm well associated, but I've generally decided that people take me too seriously, and that I'd rather not do harm to things I love by doing a hoax that goes haywire, like apparently Google's Gmail "mic drop" prank did today.

It may not be obvious, but I do have a sense of humor, but it can be sufficiently deadpan at times that people will take me seriously when I'm intending it to be a joke.
