Nothing like heading out to a a festival in the dessert just to encounter monsoon rains. But that’s exactly what happened Monday, when the grounds of Burning Man in Black Rock playa were shut down for nearly the entire day due to torrential rainstorms. Anyone at the festival site was locked in, and everyone else was locked out – redirected back to the nearest city of Reno, Nevada.
The weather has now settled and it looks like clear skies on-site, which you can check out in the Ustream Live Burningman webcast. Try not to giggle when you see a grey furry bunny shaped vehicle go by, and don’t worry about averting your eyes from the nudity – the camera is zoomed out just enough.
