With thanks to Barb Schmidt for her priceless collection of Twainquotes, it
appears Mark Twain anticipated a storm like Juno:
"Yes, the weather is bad, and if I were dealing in weather it is not the
brand that I'd put up in cans for future use. No, it is the kind of weather
I'd throw on the market and let it go for what it would fetch, and if it
wouldn't sell for anything I would hunt up some life-long enemy and present it
to him. Failing in this, as a last resort I should probably take it out on
the big bridge, dump it into the Mississippi and start it to Europe via
the jetties. I'd unload it someway, and that quickly, too.
- quoted in _"A Day with Mark Twain" by John Henton Carter_
All of us in the dry West wish all the best to those in today's path of
in cloudless, drought-stricken Carson City, Nevada.
