I've studied sword fighting and Historical European Martial Arts for decades. Right now most of my practice is in the Live Action Role Playing (LARP) field, where we use safe foam weapons rather than actual steel, but I have done a good deal of study with steel as well. I try not to nerd out too hard when the subject comes up because nobody needs that.
Anyway. It was hot. But it was good. But it was hot.

It comes to us via river flood as well. It's good stuff. The corner stone of civilization. Otherwise, damn! That's some serious erosion. What's it look like at the eroded end? Must be some wicked new ditches if it's at all like KY.
No chance of selling anything - there are millions of tons of it.
The slippage that caused the silt is unreal - some hills have just about disappeared. The big problem is they've been so weakened that any further rain will bring down more - the whole countryside is scoured in some places. At least entire town looks to have been wiped out due to the hills behind it now lying mostly where the houses are.
