I've been thinking about the nuclear crisis in Japan quite a bit lately. Living in the NorthWest US, right in the path of the jet stream that passes
by Japan, has a bit to do with it. I've been checking the radiation websites daily to keep myself up to date, and checking ATS for what's happening
across the Pacific.
So, maybe all of the info is finally getting to me...because I just had a feeling of dread come over me, and it lingered. If you've never felt
"dread", I envy you. It's an empty, cold, dark, hopeless experience. Antibiotics used to make me feel this way, and it was terribly difficult to
sleep, eat, or anything at all, really. Well, I haven't had any pills in a very long time, so I don't think that it was external chemically induced.
I read the CNN headline about the Virginia quake last week shifting some nuclear fuel storage tanks, and that was from a moderate quake. Then, I come
to ATS and I see another, much smaller, quake hits the same area today...foreshocks..? It got me thinking about how many nuclear plants, spent and
current fuel storage facilities, and waste facilities that we have here in the US, especially on the East Coast. What's going to happen if there's a
sizeable quake on the New Madrid? Let's say a magnitude 6.5 - 7. That area is capable of one, and is overdue, if anything I've seen on this site has
'learnt me nuthin' (just as we are looong overdue for a major quake up here from the Juan de Fuca fault line).
Anyway, my dread didn't last long...just long enough for me to remember what it felt like. I hate it. Feels like I have no power or ability to
change my own path...and the one I'm on leads to ultimate pain. I really hope it's not a precurser of more instances of the feeling. I also pray
that I'm not having some clairvoyant vision of what's to come.
