Amos, no place in the US is immune to earthquakes. Now, where I live we only have to worry about tornadoes, blizzards, earthquakes, and volcanoes. Tsunamis and hurricanes, no, they're off the list. In fact, we don't even have a tsunami escape route. If the volcano over in Yellowstone blows, well, I'll be joining all of MOABites (including you, eventually).

LH, Shame couldn't drink a stubby s without tossing it back up. Heck, I know for a fact he can't drink a half bottle of Labatt Dealcoholized. Ya see, he's allergic to beer and all malt beverages. Comes from dumpster diving for dregs of Bud Light.

A wise perspective, Amos. Would that Shane had such a sublime overview of mortal life. What worries him is that the world's beer may run out! He loses sleep sometimes worrying about that.

As it happens I live quite near the extension inland of the Rose Canyon fault, which topographically speaking has provided some lovely park like canyon trails for Maggie to romp in.

Should the fault let go in some hyperdramatic way, it would probably be cataclysmic for Maggie, and for me, and for my dear friends and neighbors here in sunny San Diego. If it causes snow, ultimately, by disrupting our little anomaly, I probably won't be around to care much. I will be swamped by seabed or hilltop removal on a grand scale. My Martin and my banjo, my Prius and my Stetson, all crushed to oblivion by the indifferent waves and massive debris of catastrophe.

On the other hand, if I move away, sell at the top of the market, and settle into the lovely rolling hills of North Carolina's Piedmont, or some such place, I could rest easy for my remaining years.

Really, it's six of one and half dozen of the other to me. I have lived many lifetimes that ended much worse, and have seen planets die and stars give birth to fiery ruination for parsecs in all directions. So I am not too concerned.

I read that 2 exploded but no injuries. Talk about luck! Frightening stuff. I assume couplings connecting hoses to appliances (which is common for such as cooking stoves) or on piping became loose. Stoves are a real problem because they have to have flexible hoses... if the stove shakes around too much - BOOM! Same with dishwashers with internal gas heaters.

Seriously scary shit man!

Wait until the Cascadia Fault cuts loose. It could trigger the Rose Canyon or Catalina faults, have Catalina and the other islands disappear in a sand slip, and a tsunami wouldn't do San Diego a single bit of good. It is also quite possible that a Cascadia quake and tsunami would destroy San Diego's anomaly and then...hello SNOW!!!

Alaska's overnight earthquake could have sent a tsunami southward, hammering the left coast all the way down to San Diego. They were polite, however, and contained the mess to a few grocery store aisles full of cereal boxes and broken bottles of fruit juice. Amos got lucky this time . . .

On the other hand, there's virtually nothing that could happen in Blind River which could have any effect on you, Rap, other than if the Earth collided with a really huge interstellar object of some kind...large enough to produce an ELE (extinction level event) in the northern hemisphere...if not the entire globe.

In which case...Shane would go first, I would go shortly after him, and you would go next, while Amos would go a little while after that...when the wave of utter destruction rolled over the Rocky Mountains and took out San Diego.

Don't fret -- send them to Amos for his banjo.

Amos, that was a synthesis of information I gathered from various places on the World Wide Web. I used reports from such sources as NOAA, Scripps, CSIRO, the Institute of Oceanology (China), Woods Hole, Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology, ISMER, and KIOST, among others. Remember, what happens in the Pacific can easily affect me personally here in Idaho as rain, snow, arctic cold, and heat. I know, I know, you're surprised that I actually know stuff and keep track of science-y things. But I do, I really do. So enjoy your changing anomaly while you can, okay?

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Sagittarius. The US president was Lyndon B. Johnson (Democratic). In that special week of December people in US were listening to Daydream Believer by The Monkees. In UK Hello Goodbye by The Beatles was in the top 5 hits. Doctor Dolittle, directed by Richard Fleischer, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1967 while The Confessions Of Nat Turner by William Styron was one of the best selling books. And so? But the WEATHER!!

"This is something you tell to people who are from out of the area. They have a hard time believing it," said Ken Ayers, a county native who was a dazzled 7-year-old on that wondrous day.

"It's the California Christmas dream."

The dream came true 40 years ago this morning, when gale-force winds blew a Canadian cold front far, far off course. Across San Diego County, residents woke up to see the air shimmering with something cold, white and unfamiliar.

Bill Brick, then a seventh-grader at Oak Crest Junior High School in Encinitas, remembers looking out his bedroom window that morning. His initial reaction: "Huh?"

He had not seen snow before.

San Diego's coast has not seen significant snowfall since.""

Thus, the San Diego Tribune.

Your analysis of the San Diego anomaly is most inneresting. I wish you provided sources for these dogma of yours.

December 13, 1967, Amos. A date frozen into San Diego's history. As old as you are you probably remember.

February 14, 2008. January 1, 2015. And don't forget those poor beasties who got stuck in tar and froze to death when the blizzard hit!

Right now it's 27.9F, overcast, with a 30% chance of s**w flurries. Even then the s**wfall can be erratic: the s**wfall between Monday last and yesterday brought about an inch to us at 4,740.8 feet above sea level and four inches to those a couple hundred feet lower.

Apparently you'll be experiencing more and more s**w soon, Amos. Oceanographic studies done in the last few months indicate a lessening of the warm-water anomaly off San Diego, permitting a greater and greater influx of the colder waters of the California Current. Further afield, however, the California Current itself is losing its warmth to the Granddaddy current, the North Pacific. This will bring cold water along the coast of California and with the breakdown of the San Diego anomaly means more, deeper, and more frequent snows to your part of the world. Oh! Oceanographers and NOAA give your anomaly about five years more life.

I can out-run, out-jump, out-shoot, out-brag, out-drink, an' out-fight, rough-an'-tumble, no holds barred, any man on both sides the river from Pittsburgh to New Orleans an' back ag'in to St. Paul. Come on, you flatters, you bargers, you milk-white mechanics, you sandy-cracks Californians and you'll find out how tough I am to chaw! There weren't before and never will be again someone like me! My family goes plumb back to Adam and they were never licked by man, beast or weather! I've rode tornadoes and hurricanes when everybody else rode tricycles! My daddy was the forked lightning and my mother a mountain lion! I kin rassle a griz with one hand and take care of a buffalo stampede with the other!

I think you are mistaken, Amos. I believe he is referring to "Sandy Ego", which means you. I might, however, be wrong....but given Rap's mighty capacity for boasting, I hardly thing that he would refer to himself as being "More powerful than an HO gauge locomotive!" They are very small, you know. It doesn't fit for him to describe himself in that manner.

If I am wrong, however....which has been known to happen once or twice in any given decade.... (Heh!) ...then I will make it up to you in some appropriate way, yet to be decided upon.

No, it's from the surgery. The surgeon had to work at a couple of angles he hadn't expected and so I look like I was in a bar fight. The steroid is an ocular solution of prednisone. I'll be finishing the antibiotic in a week, tapering off the pred for two weeks, and finishing the other at the same time as the pred. Arnica for the black eye; I tried using a beefsteak but the grizzlies fought me for it and the steak got shredded in the fight, as did the grizzlies.

Colors are more vivid, things are more luminous, and I am brighter and better looking...er, looking better...seeing better.

20/30 is great! Steroids? Black eye? I guess you Westerners are pretty hearty too.

I have Acuvail and Prednisolone drops now. The Zymar is done (one week).

I assume the black eye is from wearing the patch too long, especially if it was taped down very tightly. You did sleep on your "opposite" side or back, eh? No rollover eye mash in the pillow?

Good luck!

All day and overnight? I guess we here in the Merrytimes must be a hearty breed. Wait... you don't have to put in eye drops until the next day? Don't know about that part... seems odd. We get a "one-time" eye drop to be put in immediately after taking off the patch and a heavy dose of antibiotics to be taken after our next meal. Three different drops fours times a day for a week, then two of those for two weeks.

Anyway, I wish you the best of luck when you see the doc today.
