How frightening! I hope there were no deaths. Maybe that is a dumb hope, idk if people have to be in the grain elevator...?
Reports indicate that one person was burned, but no deaths. People are generally present to operate and maintain the equipment.

Saw pictures of this in the Lincoln paper. The other side looks almost as bad. Amazing that it didn't collapse.

I was in New York City for work last week and stopped by the National Museum of the American Indian. It was cool to see some artifacts that came from the southwest backcountry in the middle of the city.

Actual petroglyphs from Sand Tank, Inyo County, California


Bag, sandal, and water jug from Grand Gulch, Utah


Rabbit hunting stick, shell bead necklace, dipper, and hafted point from Grand Gulch, Utah



And, just for fun, here are a couple of photos from Central Park.

Jungle through the trees


Gazebo near 5th Avenue and 66th Street
Sucks that they ripped out that petroglyph. It's a Coso glyph from Kern and Inyo counties in CA.

This is for @Perry and any other railfans on here. Big Blue Montana Rail Link helper engines pretending they're steam engines while pushing a coal train through Livingston, MT. Sepia was the only way I could make this work, as they were in bright sun and spewing diesel smoke everywhere. I like trains, but glad to not live near them.

I used to ride the Silverton-Durango train about once a year, but not real happy with them since they started the big fire down there last summer. It's sure a neat train, though.

Maybe we should start a train thread. One more - coal hopper cars in evening light at Livingston. Those things lose around 500# per car in transport on average as coal dust. Lots come through Montana from the Powder River Basin.
