Thread: This Storm!!

  1. #21
    I'm no geologist but I do watch a lot of Discovery and History channel and basically, eathquakes are just a natural part of order on earth. The plates are always shifting or errupting from volcanoes located at the diverging plates, etc. (which is how our continents were formed). Oh and if the super volcano under Yellowstone National Park blows (which could happen any day now), we're totally doomed.

    There was a show called Apocalypse: 2012 on Discovery where they went over the different scenarios about how the world could end in December 2012. However, by the end of the show they basically said that 2012 has no special meaning and that it just happened to be the end of the Mayan calender and that we are as likely to have the world end tomorrow, as we are in 2012 or any year after that.

    These shows are always on at night and make it hard to go to sleep after watching them (I usually watch them in bed). They really put in perspective how insignificant humans are.

    This storm can suck my ****! I've been shop-vac'ing water out of my basement since Saturday morning. The ground is completely saturated and its still ****ing raining! I'll just sit here at work while 9 more hours of water creep into my basement.

    You'd think surfers of all people..would understand the unpredictability of mother nature and be the first to NOT give credence to some 2012 hogswash!

    In regards to the whale, I know that the navy just started testing sonar equipment out of wallops island last year. Assateague had three whales wash up last year, not sure about this year. I think delaware had one last year as well and now OC.....I wonder if there is a connection...anyone from surfrider more up on the info?

    Yeah he's right about that, and the thing about earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanoes is they are all related and often times one triggers another. Haiti's earthquake shifted the carribean plate which transferred a movement to the South American plate causing the tension to be released there as well. The quakes then can produce tsunami's and subducting plates form active volcanoes.

    I took a peek at Waverly in OC today - what a mess - this storm really tore it up - again.
