Remember how most of us thought 2007 was pretty awful?

Okay, we're 10 days into May and so far:
Killer cyclone in Myanmar- 500,000 could die if relief efforts continue to be stalled by crazy rulers
Earthquakes- even in places not used to them like Illinois. Odd ones off the coast of Oregon. 6.8 Earthquake near Guam tonight.
Volcano erupting in Chile
Destructive US tornado season

And that's just the natural disasters! Add to it wars, famine and disease.

Shaping up to be a real annus horribilis!

And now- 7.8 earthquake in China- that's huge- big enough to be a major disaster to an urban area with falling buildings.

I'll agree. Mother Earth is angry. Though I might ask, is the Gaia theory that farfetched?

Perhaps I'm just taking notice of these things more than usual, but doesn't it seem like there's been a higher than normal level of strong seismic activity worldwide? And has anyone noticed how bad the midwest/upland south has been getting hit with tornados and floods so far this year? It seems much, much worse than usual, but it also seems to be coming fast and furious.

We had a HELLACIOUS thunderstorm here in MD last night! Usually I'm right at the front window watching the lightning but this was right on top of us with so many ground strikes coming- couldn't do the 1001 1002 thing at all. With all the tornadoes this year, I made like Dorothy and took Tesla and VeraWang with me down to the basement! Never felt the need to do this before ever.

Many trees down, thousands are still without power now. We did okay, but the Vonage adapter got fried.

Well, now we've got a tornado in Iowa that hit a Boy Scout camp and has killed at least 4.

We've always associated tornadoes with the lower Plains states- Oklahoma for sure. This year with Minnesota and Iowa being hit hard it's different.

Did you see those big houses just float away in the Wisconsin Dells?

Tough to watch all these happenings in the American Heartland, for sure. I wish to point out that our President is overseas on his diplomatic farewell tour. Bush needs to get his fanny back home.

Iowa is under water. Hope they can swim.

It's shaping up to look like a Katrina event, only across three or four states! Meanwhile, other parts of the country are having a drought!


I find all the Doom of late quite overwhelming!

Iowa. Where they grow most of the nation's corn. No corn means no feed for cattle. No ethanol for cars. No corn dogs! Argh...

I live in Wisconsin. They've never seen this much rain in such a small period of time. They actually shut down the bloody interstate. In my whole life I've never seen this happen. What's even worse, a lot of these towns lapsed out of their federal flood insurance, so many people won't see a cent from FEMA. I can imagine that twon council meetings are going to be quite heated...one town, Lake Delton, which was built around a lake created by diverting the Wisconsin River, is completely devastated, because while the dam held, the town was still sitting on a floodplain. Complete disaster, and the way Lake Michigan has a way of corralling weather systems, it is most likely not the end of it.

They're estimating that the crops this year will be a near total loss. I'm never one to be an alarmist, but it might be well advised to stock up on the grains you use now before the prices go through the roof. If harvests fell short last year, they're really going to be short this year. Trust me, all the corn was planted in April, and now most of those fields are totally wrecked and who knows when those fields will be dry enough to replant...and even if it's not too late to replant anyway...

It sucks to be a type 0 civilization.
