Past Nairn Centre

This morning I went to Dynamic Planet, a museum of mining funded largely by INCO, hoping it would mention the environmental damage done by mining and the industry's efforts to lessen it.  On the way into Sudbury I had passed a sign demonstrating the success that's been made since 1979 in foresting some of INCO's slag piles.  The museum and mine tour didn't mention either the problems or the solutions, but it did teach me quite a lot about mining.

I was going to see how far I could get today, but weather forecasts on the radio were warning about severe storms and possible tornadoes before sunset.  A policeman at a rest stop strongly encouraged me to get off the road ASAP, and he told me some places I could go.  There aren't a lot of people I'll take travel advice from, but cops are among them, so I stopped for the night midway between Nairn Centre and McKerrow.  We'll see if this storm shows up.
