Monte Carlo Fire

I think the best picture I saw of the fire at the Monte Carlo casino was not one that had flames, but this closeup showing the aftermath and the damage. You need to see the big size to catch all the melted details on the facade.

But I think the real story here – did we know that they are using highly flammable foam to shape out the details on these hotels? Highly-flammable foam that apparently burns like straw and drops embers onto the street below? Is that something we were supposed to know?


So I just now got around to putting my Halloween home movies up on YouTube. It starts off with some footage of Sam fooling around in his costume, and then goes into views of all the decorated houses around the west side of Carson City. It’s great how the whole neighborhood around the Governor’s Mansion gets into the Halloween spirit and decorates like this.
