I started to become very upset and broken hearted and had to stop. And then while I was driving around town and the places I had taken all of the pictures, the feeling didn't get any better because they all look even worse then when I was out this weekend. Whatever "it" is (and the article about why the trees are dying gave many ideas to the combined effort of possibilities of why), it's definitely impacting my area in a serious way. And I feel...well...kind of helpless about the whole thing.
I want to pretend like nothing is going on. I want to believe that it's normal. I almost want to go back to sleep and wake up from this "Alice in Wonderland" adventure I feel like I've wandered into ever since all of the bird & fish deaths started in January. I want to believe that it's all ok. I really, really do. I want the skeptics and debunkers to be right.
But, seeing what I am everyday, everywhere I go...all I feel now when I'm told it's normal and that everything is ok, is that my personal experiences & observations are invalid and that I should doubt my own senses. And the feeling that I should doubt my own senses makes me feel powerless and fearful. I'm tired of feeling powerless and fearful over what is going on in my environment.

Well,take a look at this.
I have holding on to it for some time.
Maybe it might help.
There is some intriguing research about whether large earthquakes are associated with ionospheric changes caused by electromagnetic signals released by the crushing of rock crystalline structures. If so, then this might be a mechanism for major earthquake prediction. One of the primary researchers in this area is Friedemann Freund, of NASA Ames. He has written several articles introducing the concept of ionospheric and atmospheric changes as earthquake precursors:
Earth is a restless planet. Occasionally – quite often, in some regions of the world – the restlessness turns deadly. Of all natural hazards, earthquakes are the most feared. They are feared because they seem to strike so unpredictably. Yet, for centuries, and even millennia, people living in seismically active regions have noted premonitory signals. The historical records talk of changes of the water level in wells, of strange weather, of ground-hugging fog, of unusual behavior of animals (both domestic and wild) that seem to feel the approach of a major earthquake. With the advent of modern science and technology the list of premonitory signals has become even longer. Among them are (i) Sporadic emissions of low to ultralowfrequency electromagnetic radiation from the ground (ii) Occasional local magnetic fi eld anomalies reaching a strength of half a percent of the Earth’s main dipole fi eld (iii) Changes in the lower atmosphere that are accompanied by the formation of haze and a reduction of moisture in the air (iv) Large patches, often tens to hundreds of thousands of square kilometers in size, seen in night-time infrared satellite images where the land surface temperature seems to fl uctuate rapidly (v) Passing perturbations in the ionosphere at 90 - 120 km altitude that affect the transmission of radio waves Deciphering these signals and learning how to “read” them has remained a source of great frustration. Many seismologists have lost faith that earthquakes would ever become predictable beyond statistical probabilities which leave uncertainties of by Friedemann Freund Collapse of Hanshin Expressway in Japan National Information Service for Earthquake Engineering, University of California, Berkeley
Almost forgot about this stuff.
What I find intriguing is the satellite imagery of land surface temps fluctuating rapidly.
