Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
Not weather, but maybe I should explain, we have had a series of earthquakes off the west coast of the Island here for the past day or so, little ones, 4.5, 5.2 etc., a step up in the usual stuff, which is good in some ways, because it relieves the pressure where the plate dives down under the Island.
The bad part is all the quakes are at the north end of the Juan de Fuca Ridge and the south end is doing nothing and has been doing nothing for years and it is believed that our end is hung up and it is hung up right below where I live and so any change in activity comes up on my personal radar screen.
Snow!....I scoff at snow! But I tend to hang on a bit when I contemplate the BIG BUMP. The only thing that gives me a bit of comfort is that this Island was up, even when Alberta was an inland surrounded by dinosaurs.
