There oughta be a Law

I recently posted the photo below and asked what the image had to do with St. Louis Brick. No takers!

In the mid 1800's a steamboat named White Cloud ignited on the levee. The fire spread and a third of the wood frame buildings in St. Louis burned. An ordinance was passed forbidding the construction of wood buildings and resulting in our astonishing brick work.

Somewhat cloud related: While driving home today I glanced in the rear view mirror to keep an eye on the lunatic edging closer and closer to my car. I was charmed to see the reflections of two white clouds on their windshield situated where two people would have been sitting in the car. It was spooky cool.
