Me too. I just talked to a family member this afternoon who's in Boston on business and they felt that earthquake there. Said she'd felt stronger ones in her travels, but it was a bit unnerving to her at any rate. Specially being in a high rise motel in the heart of downtown Boston..
That New Madrid Fault really concerns me, that much I will admit. If that thing shifts like it did in the 1800's, well.. We all know how much devastation would occur and there would be no escape.. Not to mention, the Wolf Creek Dam scenario..
You are right. It is extremely unusual to be aware of even a small earthquake in the Boston, Ma. area. I was a lifelong resident of MA. until we moved to KY fourteen years ago. If I recall correctly, we did feel a very minor tremor there about 16 years ago, with the epicenter being in NY state. It makes you wonder what on earth is going on with these odd occurrences.

I have been keeping track of the animal die-offs, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions, and this seems to be a period of disruption for planet earth. Some of this activity may be related to heightened solar activity. We are within a two year span of solar max., through 2013. So the activity (solar flares, solar wind, etc.) will peak in about another year.

I'm glad that NOPE has joined the conversation. It's like a fresh breath of air. Plus, the style of writing, syntax, and vocabulary level tells me that there is an intelligent person posting. Why don't you just chill and join the conversation in a polite way. You will always be treated as you treat others.
Thank you, Lala. That was awefully nice of you to say! I enjoy this thread and really do appreciate the fact that we can share experiences, give each other helpful advice, and also make sure we're all up to date on current events.

I have a friend at Fort Meade who was troubled about it and thinking about hometown Paducah and the implications of the Madrid Fault taking half of Kentucky with it when it blows. All that research on earthquakes taught us a lot, that is why I kept up the earthquake report. If they are happening in the Madrid Fault, I want to know about it. Got to be prepared. They say it could be bad enough to split the country in half with the Great Lakes flowing right down to the Gulf. That was a scary video, done by the Navy I think. What will be will be, but if you are prepared you can survive the aftermath if you survive the initial quake. Them doing the National Earthquake Drill last May shows they are aware of all of them around the world, especially in our country.

I have as well. Paying particular attention as well to the wildlife that lives around us on the property. Last year the squirrels were frantic, albeit late, in getting their cache of winter food stored away. Yet we hardly had any winter to speak of, which I thought was pretty bizarre. Animals can tell us so much if we just observe and take note of what they do day to day throughout the seasons.

I think the same as lala, I hope we can keep the thread clean and continue on with the sharing. We have a lot to share. It is a shame someone has to make it their lifelong quest to kill the thread. Pretty sad I would say to even admit that, let alone feel that way. There are so many threads with so many subjects one could follow besides the Bird thread.

Yes, Paducah would be in dire straits if it shifts. I can only imagine in my worse nightmares the shear number of people who would perish during the initial quake. And the aftershocks?

Plus hearing about how the quake caused the Mississippi to actually reverse it's flow? It's fascinating in certain aspects, learning about what happened back then... But realizing how much danger could be unleashed is so terrifying at the same time.

If you cant feel the evil from that brown eye, that's your problem sister, you were warned.

The thread will be fine. It's up to us to KEEP it in order though. So far I've enjoyed it again, just as I did last year. If however it starts to take a dive I guess I'll peel again, LOL!! Not that my views will change on current events or what we might be facing in the future, mind you....

New Madrid Fault Intro: Site map
Dec. 1811- Feb. 1812
"My kingdom for a horse"

River ran backward - after Mother Nature suddenly dropped a couple of dams across the nation's largest waterway.

Eyewitnesses - made notes of 1811-12 quakes
Mississippi ran backward - from Enigma paper
Centennial history - several notes from eyewitnesses we hadn't seen elsewhere. Note halfway through this piece that many people gathered on Tywappity hill, 30 miles north and 7 miles inland from the river... to seek safety from the shakes. We strongly suspect the hill is now at Lake Tywappity, at the SE edge of Chaffee, MO.
First steamboat really shaken - river rerouted, island disappears

1811-12 quakes especially shook lowlands from near Niagra Falls to the Carolinas and lower Georgia.
Little Prairie residents had no warning, waded eight miles. Geysers higher than trees.
Take a self-tour of the New Madrid Seismic Zone.

Savannah Ga - felt the big one. So did Knoxville Tn. and the Carolinas-eastern seacoast & near Buffalo NY.

These references include newspaper articles, scientific articles, folklore, maps, and eyewitness accounts, such as the one below:

This account of the New Madrid Earthquake was recorded by George Heinrich Crist, residing at the time in the north-central Kentucky county of Nelson, near the present location of Louisville.

Did FEMA Expect Midwest MegaQuake by 2014?

by Sara Reardon on 1 February 2011, 5:39 PM
Is an earthquake the size of the 1811 New Madrid quake, the largest ever to hit the eastern United States, imminent in the next 3 years? Most seismologists believe that the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ), which runs along the Mississippi River and stretches across eight states, has the potential to shift again but they can only predict a low probability of it doing so at any given time. But the Federal Emergency Management Agency issued a request for information (RFI) to vendors last week for 140 million meals ready to eat (MREs) for a projected 7 million survivors in the event of an NMSZ earthquake. Then they pulled the request, saying it was a bureaucratic error.

I'm not fond of cold weather either. My bones ache, the dogs don't want to go out, I DON'T WANT TO GO OUT, lol. It's particularly difficult to take care of the chickens and other animals...

But if we didn't have winter freezes in this part of the country, the terrain would eventually be so different that we'd not recognize it any more.. Certain plants need their dormancy periods, etc. We'd eventually be missing all of our beautiful dog wood trees in bloom. Oh and the cherry, pear and apple blossoms that smell so wonderful after a long winter of being stuck indoors.

Wow, I'm looking forward to spring already just out of dread about the looming winter, HAHA!

What we thought killed the BIRDS for the umpteen time:

Methane Gas from the Earth/Earthquakes

HAARP

Poisening by farmers or the government

I'm going to do what I can to help get this thread back to the original subject matter with discussion of all these dead birds in Western Kentucky back in January 2011.

Surely there's going to be more investigations into this tragedy.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
