Fallon, NV


Cancer Cluster Not Proven
- 11/15/2006
The cancer cluster scare of a few years ago (2001)was just that- a scare. Cancer clusters are based on the information gathered. Here in Nevada cancer in children is tracked to age 19. Just across the borger in Arizona the reporting of cancer stops at 13 years. I know that some of the children included in the cluster had their cancers diagnosed before they moved here. Anyway, Fallon now has the best water purification system in the country. And I still drink my well water- it's delicious! Fallon's a great town, and I'm glad my children have had the chance to grow up here.

High mountain climate
- 8/18/2006
Fallon is a nice little town with two seasons due to it's high elevation. We have 7 months of winter (mid-Oct thru mid-May) and 5 months of summer (late May thru early Oct). Its very dry, though these last two winters we had a lot of snow. Seems most of the precipitation is snow, not rain. We have something called Po-go-nip, Paiute word meaning "white death", its a snow fog that we had two years ago for a month straight. The daily high never got over 32 degrees and we didn't se the sun at my house for 30 days straight. We put our fireplace to good use that winter!
