    If it's the Yellowstone Volcano, we can all start praying.

    I know you're old, and memories fade and all, but it was about 200 years ago during historic times in America, not 1000 years ago. The New Madrid earthquake:

    If it were to happen now, there would be tremendous destruction.

    Thanks for the correction and the link. I only remembered main points of article I read long ago - obviously exactly when was not one of them.

    There have been SO many bigger quakes since I started this thread. Just had a 4.5 in CA. My neighbors in Malibu felt their house shift. Damn. Interstate 5 buckled.
    Chile just had a 6.7

    All planes have been grounded in Britain due to dust from Eyjafjallajokull Volcano.
    Never heard of that happening before.

    I was in a 7.2 in CA over my Easter vacation. It was cool.

    I would like that too, so long as I wasn't trapped under a rock

    I've changed my mind on earthquake frequency.
    I feel sure there's an unusual amount of geological activity so far this year.
    I've got no statistics. Just judging from TV reports.

    We were supposed to have a sunny day today, but the sky is completely grey,
    All the same shade.

    And that Eyjafjallajokull volcano looks like Heyell ! That fire coming over the hill looks like the devil's horns to me.

    Something about having no fear allows one to enjoy even the "scariest" stuff. It is amazing.

    Yeah, that, too. The fireball thing was a little more awesome than the two quakes I've been in. The IL quake was wimpy compared to the CA one.

    I see a plane in the picture. What a view the pilot must have had!
    I bet the people who didn't have window seats, or were on the wrong side of the plane were miffed.

    And Polar bears are stealing photographic equipment.
