The little yellow building at the Carson City Airport survived a war against the elements. Rain water had rushed in from the tarmac, filling one room in the kitchen. The building had settled, causing a crack in two walls. So, if you stood in the flooded kitchen room you could look through the crack and watch a plane landing on the runway and feel the wind against your face.
