JOHNNIE, Nev., July 5 – During a severe storm last night a cloudburst which occurred twenty miles from here caused a washout and flooded the country. The wind blew at the rate of eighty miles. The train on the Las Vegas and Tonopah railway, due here at 4:30 last night, was delayed until 3 this morning. The town of Bowlerville, five miles from here, is a complete wreck.

Speaking of mobile apps, two of my favorite mobile apps for exploring the southwest are two different mapping apps one that builds your schedule and the other helps me look to see if my rural destination is taking me to private or public lands. Highly recommend both!
