Until I did that Google search I thought that it was 'normal'. I do not think it was my imagination and I did spend many hours on that small lake. The flood of 1955 took out the spillway; but my grandparents rebuilt it during the cleanup. They finally sold the hotel and bar about the year I graduated (1964). Later the spillway was washed out again for the new owners and then never replaced the dam. Of course building and maintaining dams got harder every year.

Thank you for the picture; I have been looking to and with no luck!

I suspect flocks of starlings or racing pigeons which are reported falling dead and dying out of the sky are because of cloaked invisible craft which they have just flown into.


Looking forward to seeing rover images of dust piled up behind rocks blown there by Mars-wide dust storms which blow dust all over the planet and onto the rover's deck (and off again apparently). Dust devils are shown by NASA making dark tracks across the ground which suggest the wind is strong enough to blow the existing sand and dirt away from its path, scoring the ground. "Debris" include 5mm hematite spherules or 'blueberries' which litter the ground in some places. Your turn.
We might get our chance before long to see how the Mars landscape changes as a result of the dust storm. It seems to be abating (https://www.space.com/41302-mars-dus...ying-down.html). Word is that rover Curiosity is fine, but rover Opportunity might not wake up from the long period of silence. Hopefully it will.

It seems to take a long time after they're shot for pictures to be made available for viewing ... which, of course, is fodder for the conspiracy theorists who insist that NASA is altering the images to cover up evidence of past civilizations ....

That's because the data is being sent very slowly due to the low power and the distances involved, and the heavy duty image processing required to produce a decent looking image after one is received. With images from the surface or orbit of a distant body, data can only be transmitted during part of the object's day, slowing the process even more. I remember staying up late in the night to watch the Mariner flyby in 1964; it came in very slowly, scan line by scan line, and the end result was a fuzzy and blurry mess. We didn't see a higher resolution image for some time after that (can't remember how long but it was at least several days).

Since NASA has to suck up to congress to get their budgets approved, I suspect there's pressure to present good looking results to their funders as well - as well as their enemies in congress who don't believe we should be spending money on space research.
