I think its a big deal…

This is the highest that Cincinnati has seen the Ohio river since 1997. I’m mentioning this because the other day I received a message that said “so what, BFD. Snow melt and rain make it flood.” Sure it does, but this flood event is happening in the end of February, Not March or April as it usually does. Or does this mean since its flooding so early now that this will be a long spring and summer with plenty of rain and flooding?

I’m starting to wonder if people are starting to get desensitized on these major weather events because of how often we are experiencing them. Most of the time, a person who shrugs off such a flooding event, has never had to go through the whole flood/clean up process. Its not fun and a flood could change everything in your life. Especially for those who cant afford flood insurance. Now there are federal grants out there to help home owners but it doesn’t cover everything.

South bend Indiana officials are calling this the 500 year flood… But some of you say “BFD?” Lack of compassion and that kind of mentality will not be a path to success in the grand solar minimum.I wonder if this person would be saying that if they lost a home or a loved one due to any type of flood, let alone this historic flood event that is happening now. Rain stops for Monday and Tuesday but picks back up in the same region on Wednesday and beyond.

Be vigilant, be kind, try to be good to each other because you’ll never know when something like this will impact you and then you might need someone to lean on or ask a stranger for help. It humbles you and you become more appreciative for what you have and gives you some compassion when other folks are going through some very difficult times due to the flooding or any type of disaster.

Watch for Ice!!

 

As cold air spills into the center of the nation behind a band of heavy rain, dangerously icy conditions are expected to develop.

Following the recent surge of unseasonable warmth in the Central and Midwest states, the cool and wet weather that followed felt especially wintry. The frigid air that follows will feel particularly biting, as well.

After nearing 70 degrees Fahrenheit in St. Louis on Tuesday, temperatures are expected to remain in the low 30s F on Wednesday. And unlike Tuesday’s pooling rainfall and runoff, any precipitation on Wednesday will freeze where it lands.

More seismic activity at Yellowstone….

 

Another story breaks about seismic activity in Yellowstone and of course there are scientist rushing to the internet to tell us not to worry.. Knowing what we all know we are heading into(grand solar minimum), this is and always will be something to watch. We all know the consequences of an eruption from Yellowstone, 2/3 of the country would be wiped out and a very deep cooling trend will begin for sure.

So whenever we see an article about uptick in seismic activity at Yellowstone, if its not a big deal then why write about it? Is the media trying to keep our frequency low? Thats just my take. Here is an article from the watchers.news :

Another seismic swarm is taking place at Yellowstone National Park since February 8, 2018. The swarm started with just a few events per day and intensified on February 15. Earthquake swarms like this account for more than 50% of the seismic activity at Yellowstone, the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory said, adding that no volcanic activity has occurred from any past such events.
