14. A whole lot of nothing, by the looks of it.
It's in the middle of a very mountainous region that appears, at least from satellite photos, to be relatively unpopulated.

the guys at San Francisco City Hall weren't minding the fax machine -- if you can believe that.

Because I was on the net, I had enough warning to get my animals secured and ready to go.
