So much energy wasted on negativity!
The more things change, the more they stay the same!
TA we appreciate all your hard work & observing!!!
Human beings are an arrogant lot!
And I've noticed that people get more cranky & testy when there are good-sized earthquakes going on.
(Or maybe it just flushes that type out in the open!) There have been 3, 6's in less than 30 hours!
I believe it was before the the twin 8's in April that it got really 'staticy' around here!
Being informed & keeping both eyes open is NOT fear mongering!
Humans do not know everything about anything, including volcanoes.
Our little spit of time on this planet, even the whole of recorded seismicity is nothing in the cycle of Yellowstone.
We just do NOT know what is normal & what is not. What if it's on a cycle of 1,000 swarms? 999 times it's nothing, but the 1,000th is the precursor
to large inflation?
Do people not remember anything about Mount St Helens?
Oh, yeah! There were even nay sayers right up to the last minute, even with all the increasing activity!
Fifty seven people died there. Including a photographer & a geologist!
Some of the people were too stubborn to leave, some didn't believe it would get worse!
The USGS had to 'persuade' them to close it & leave it closed! They were getting pressured to reopen it!
"Nothing unusual to see here folks, move along." Famous, famous, last words!!!
There's a big difference between, Be aware! and Beware! Some people around here aren't proficient readers apparently!!!
Okay, rant over! Must be an '8' coming yet, usually I'm just 'observing quietly'!!!!
