Heavy rain puts out Burning Man Festival
Permalink  
 


This place west of Winnemucca NV a dry lake bed where "The Burning Man Festival" has been held for many years now turned to disaster with heavy rains.

The mud situation so bad 70,000 attendees cant leave. Any attempts is met with getting stuck. This years Burning Man Festival held with Mercury and Venus

in retrograde. Bet many will never want to go the Burning Man again. Burning Man Festival is a gathering of "Mad Max" civilization or lack of.

 

Chaos as 70,000 trapped...

 You don't see this every day: "No, there's not an Ebola outbreak at Burning Man."

I guess to appreciate the size/scope of the Burning Man Festival you need to see it from the air. Its a "City"
with "neighborhoods" and streets/alleys put together in a week. Not sure how early people show for Burning Man
but some serious planning took place to get so organized like this. Everything is "mobile". Well until it rained.
This is a great video taken about the time people were making first attempts to leave Burning Man behind.

Then the nightmare of 70,000 mobile vehicles leaving at once to a 2-lane blacktop road miles away. That traffic jam will last for days.

Guess there is still some "tows" left at Burning Man grounds months later. This one was a real "bugger".
