Property loss and rising lake levels

Asking another question: Are there articles about what happens to housing ( in terms of value, liability, foreclosure, etc.) on Lake Michigan when the lake rises? I'm thinking of the properties in St. Joe's that have lost all their beach...and most if not all of their land between their structure and the water.

Can you identify

photos are by use of magnifying glass in front of phone camera lens but it is like a size of a flea. Howerver, it ran and did NOT jump like a flea would have (have cat and dogs, I know it's not a flea for SURE). I think in describing one could say that it felt a tiny bit ..idk.... softer? This bug was picked off from crawling on a living room chair. As soon as I picked it off I immediately snapped it between my two thumb nails. It was scurrying along rather quick and too took me 3 attempts to pick it off for it also flatter than any bug I've seen (even before squishing). As with anyone I think safe to say; I hope and pray its not a bed bug, hence resembles an "Apple seed" to me. Eeeeks!!! Also, don't know how many more there could be, but how do I get rid of them PLEASE. Thank you in advance for responsding , your time and knowledge is a much welcomed HELP.

Petrified wood crystals?

My friend recently found a big piece of petrified wood covered in small translucent crystal's that are smokey black at the tips. I believe they are some type of quartz due to the heat and the forest fires, this would explain the black trapped at the tips. My friend found them by a creek.. we live in Arizona. I need professional help finding out what these are! The Crystal's are about half a centimeter large each, and they are all clustered together. I am wondering if it is possible for quartz to grow on wood? This was found on a very very old tree. This is very strange and I have not seen any crystalized pieces of petrified wood that look like this anywhere on the web! Help would be greatly appreciated.

Mold/Fungus on my Thundercloud

What is this mold/fungus on my thunder cloud plum tree and what can I do about it? Also my tree went through a drought but it seems to have survived. There are a lot of suckers growing from the roots. Is there anything special I should do to help my Thundercloud? I just had it pruned in November.
