yellowstone supervolcano!

here is the scariest scene from "Supervolcano" lloks like the world ending...and the world as we know it, does indeed end!


Today is the first day of the rest of my blog.

Have been researching the supervolcano in Yellowstone (caldera) recently; I had first heard about volcanic calderas last year. There are a couple of BBC docu-dramas on this, "End Day", and "Supervolcano". You can view the entire docu-drama "Supervolcano" on youtube. Scary stuff.

Last month, Yellowstone reported an earthquake swarm, in unusual number and intensity. This has spiked interest in the supervolcano scenarios. If you watch the docu-drama, boy, it's scary stuff for a sober mind. A lot of people would rather not hear about it and blow it off. I like researching all kinds of things, this has definitely been one of the more interesting! This is one of the great things about working in a library...knowledge at your fingertips.

....I am very grateful to live way down here in Texas!
