A Primer On Gretchen Whitmer

The fine governor of Michigan  (and possible VP candidate, which means future POTUS because, let’s be honest, Biden isn’t going to make it long) has been in the news a LOT, so perhaps this should have been done long ago.   Better late then never, so here we go.

Gretchen Esther Whitmer (born August 23, 1971) is an American politician serving as the 49th governor of Michigan.

MMM 390: Dwarka

Dwarka?  No, not the modern, coastal city.  This Dwarka.

There are, in fact two sunken Dwarkas.  One just off the coast, and one even farther out.

The ruins have been dated as far back as 10k or even 12k BC, which puts them safely above water until two ancient periods of sea rise as the last major glaciation ended (whether that end was gradual or sudden is hotly debated, with the establishment holding that the ice melted gently over a long time, and a growing number who believe that it came suddenly, and may have coincided with a cosmic impact of some sort).

This isn’t the clearest water, and marine ecology has a way of wearing down most everything people build, so it’s amazing we can see this stuff as well as we can given the time in that environment.dwarka1.jpg

Some columns miraculously still stand.

This is a nice montage set I couldn’t find apart.

Power outage yesterday helped us learn that the breaker in the house labeled “barn” might not be connected to, well, anything.  The barn appears to be wired to a breaker labeled “OUT” in the breaker box in the other basement.  Neat!

Big balls around this place.
