Yeah, I have no idea, I could get no concensus. We we went out to watch the Persieds Meteor Shower maybe 10 miles east of where DPW et al is building BRC. The weather, besides the expected hot, was great Little to no wind, no clouds at night offered great views of long and large 'shooting stars', no rain
But speculation -- multiple whiteouts - daily, depleting the population. I won't say why, but folks leaving was second.
Giant rains like 2000 flooding the playa trapping us all in the sticky goo. There were a couple others, but some people can be so dark. OK, I did put money down on one outcome but it was a longshot. My winning anything requires a pretty large body count...
