Well, if they were "Mothmen," they were there watching and waiting for a reason, to observe or enjoy
or whatever it is they do with
Of course, Missouri is the site of the worst earthquake in recorded North American history — In 1812, the great New Madrid quake and its
aftershocks, centered in Missouri, rocked the whole continent from Boston to the Gulf of Mexico. Changed the course of the Mississippi River. Some
people who lived on the east bank of the Miss found themselves living on the west bank within 24 hours, as I recall...actually rerouted
river. It was a badass.
So, as inviting as the inland USA may seem for shelter from massive earthquakes, New Madrid just blows away all your dreams of safety.
Really, in addition to the godawful "Big One" for which they're waiting on the West Coast, they're waiting for an EVEN BIGGER ONE on the East
Coast — if the right seismic event happens in the Carolinas (which is the hottest place in the USA for a DEADLY earthquake, not the West Coast), you
could see carnage like you've never imagined.
Anyway, the point is that Missouri is another of the super-earthquake zones on the Earth's surface, and I wonder if the Mothmen were there, in your
childhood past, waiting for another earthquake. Do you remember any earthquakes in Missouri in your childhood, and what was the location of your
"winged men" relative to New Madrid?
