      If so, they are very small.  *gets a dustpan and broom just in case*

    Ahh, green. Sadly no Falconite, but maybe something interesting!

    The chances of anything coming from Mars are a million to one…

    was on an errand for Professor Valeska, distracted, he was looked at
    the ground as he walked, thinking about that differential equation
    that refused to give up its secrets, when he noticed two doors lying
    on the walk in front of him. He was startled to see the building in
    front of which he stood had undergone some kind of flame-less
    explosion, its roof missing and its internal parts in disarray,
    debris every where, a hollowed ring of earth inside. Then he spotted
    the petite Miss Kimika moving about inside, inspecting the ruin.

    stranger to chaos, he was nevertheless distressed to see a woman
    discomfited. He inquired after her trouble, and she informed him of
    the unexpected arrival, during the night, of a meteoroid. She took
    him to the edge of the crater and showed him the large meteorite, the
    visible part the size of a hansom cab, a stoney mass infused with a bluish metaloid, imbedded in what had been her
    warehouse floor. Underwood asked after the safety of Commodore Dagger
    and was reassured. Sorry for her misfortune, he offered whatever
    services he might render if ever they were necessary. She thanked
    him, told him she would summon him if needed, and let him know she had to see to business matters; so he took
    leave. So he returned to his route, and considered how ephemeral is
    existence, and the ownership of material things; he shuddered slightly
    at the possibility of the object striking and unfortunate in their
    bed, then turned his mind back to nested derivatives.

    The building is a loss what with the broken foundation, cracked walls, etc. The lot is being cleaned but work has been suspended for the afternoon for the Burning Barrel Race. Its disturbing to consider what might have happened. Jed and I were there for a time on the evening of that night. Its also fortunate that the meteorite was moving relatively slowly, else the entire city could have been devastated.

    Quite a few items were being stored in the building and it looks like a damaged goods sale of the salvageable items will be in order. The items include apples, blowtorches, drills, electrical furnace grates, hookahs, industrial jam kegs, laminated marking nibs, obsidian polish, qualified retrograde spanners, tube uncouplers, vises, wire, xylene, yams, and zymometers.




    (( The site will be cleared Sunday morning. Its the closing of a temporary prim farm which I’m making up as I go.))
