Have they ever closed Burning Man before?

Rain in California desert in August during a drought is really weird, right?

I don't know if they have ever closed it before.  Very thankful for the rain, it's making up for the low snow-pack, keeping plants watered and decreasing our fire risk ;)

Another interesting thing is: the Black Rock Playa is actually a dried up lake bed.

It is in the northern Nevada section of the Great Basin with a lakebed that is a dry remnant of Pleistocene Lake Lahontan.

Humans have been in Black Rock Desert since approximately 11,000 BC. In 1300 BC the area was settled by the Paiute people.

Wow! That has to be one of the longest-populated places on earth.
