My thoughts? I'll put it this way:
we had a crazy summer. The weather was atrocious most of the time. Instead of 30-plus Celsius, we went through day after day of rain and temps in the
low teens. Our plans of weeks at our little cottage in the country went awry, because all we were doing was running the heating and watching the
Now that I'm back at work, the weather is brilliant. Bright, sunny days and record highs. This weekend, therefore, we'd planned to go to the cottage
and do some work in the garden and just enjoy the country air, but the past couple of days have changed that. I've not got to sleep before 2 am in
three nights, everything hurts and I don't have a virus or anything, just feel rotten. It eased a little yesterday evening but not much. Got to bed at
a bit before 3 am.
We're not going to the cottage this weekend. For one thing, I just can't handle the demands of driving there.
For another, I feel the need to have my computer up and running so I can check those quake maps regularly and also keep an eye on GEE.
Anxious? Yes. You bet.
Rational, or over-reacting to nothing?
I've been around long enough to listen to what my senses pick up, and I'm not a hysterical type. I don't feel it's all quiet on the Western Front yet.
I'm not saying that in a "doom and gloom" way. Anyone who's read a fair number of my posts on the subject of quakes and predicting them (that even
within this thread stretch back to May of 2008) knows how I do things. More than once, I have voiced my opinion against claims of impending huge
quakes that were running around the forums and stated that I did not see any indicators for them and that they were, IMHO, not going to happen. In
cases where I said that, I was ultimately shown to be right. Not beating a drum, just saying.
Hey, I've been wrong sometimes and posted that as well...
But right now, I'm just not sure
what's going on. Things are, simply put, odd
I'm just telling it how it is, from my current perspective.
To finish this post, I'd like to say that the mag 7.3 in Fiji doesn't seem right somehow. This was an incredibly deep quake and I don't see how it
might connect to the dots of something in the PNW, if you follow. I'm not saying it doesn't, not saying it wasn't "it" (for 9/15), just that I can't
work it out and it bothers me that the Cascadia zone stopped having tremors on the same day -- and the rationale as to why
is beyond my meager
abilities to comprehend. We've missed something and I have no idea what it is. But we've missed something.
