Thanks Mac,

I had not seen those before.

You in the area in July 1945, hope you don't have the lung problem.

A close friend of mine in the USAF back when they started testing the 'bomb' again in Nevada, volunteered to be one of the 100's to 'observe' the explosions from a certain distance in the 1951 tests. When he returned to our base a few months later, he described the explosions and everything that happened. I lost track of him, read a few years ago, that practically all those that participated in those test came down with cancer/lung problems attributed to the bomb.

I remember seeing a sequence like yours

In reply to: Looking back - Trinity Site - 60 years ago

in an encyclopedia we had, only this one was an underground explosion. The first in the sequence showed the ground beginning to swell.

I just wonder what all those experiments have done to the geology of the area.

One could think, from your SE name

In reply to: Not a Dr., either:

that you might be a tree surgeon....and I could use the help of one as most of my tree and shrub shaping winds up not being completed until I'm at least 1/2 foot below soil level.;)

My wife just got an article in the Abq paper

In reply to: One could think, from your SE name

when she replied to a request for interesting name stories: She works as a landscape designer! They also got a trumpet player named Bluett.

''Then Amos answered and said to Amaziah ... I was a herdsman and a nipper of figs of sycamore trees.'' (Amos 7:14) So of course I always think of him as a Pruner.
Happy
