    Shake Rattle And Roll

    Well we got the official word today. There were a total of 40 quakes that tickled Jackson over the two day period. they ranged from 1.0 to 5.0 and were felt by folks in 36 different zip codes according to the U.S.G.S. site that askes for folks that felt it to report it. The quakes came from the Gros Ventre mountain area and not from the Teton fault that is expected to go with a 7.5 or bigger and is 10,000 or so years overdue to go. There is some speculation that this could be setting the Teton fault to go and that if it does go big it could have a bad effect on Yellowstone's volcano. The epic center was just 20 to 25 miles ENE from Jackson and the Teton fault is right outside of Jackson. Man, talk about sitting on a powder keg and letting a group of monkeys play with matches. Oh well, we all gotta go some time, huh. After all who wants to live forever. :lol:

    This is the most I have seen here in the 15 or so years I have lived here. Swarms are not that common this close to town that can be felt like this was. earth quake swarms are usually up in the park area.

    It is a possibility that has been talked about. They have found out that an earthquake in one place could and can set off quakes in other places where faults are prone to frequent activity and Yellowstone fits the bill on that one. Of course no one can really say what will happen either way. Like the experts say, it is not a matter of it it will blow, it is just a matter of when it will blow. No one knows.

    I visited the Yellowstone area, and camped in the wilderness area to the north of the park years ago.
    The most beautiful part of the country I've ever seen.

    I watched a program on NatGeo about the seismic activity under Yellowstone. When it goes it's gonna be a big one.

    Well, when you remember that Yellowstone quite possibly has the worlds largest active magma chamber in the world today ( many miles wide, long and deep ) yeah it could make a little noise and make a little bit of a mess I think. LOL

    OT I know all of that shakin around gets everyone on edge there where you live.

    Thankfully nothing really damaging happened.

    Wonder how all of the wildlife reacts to earthquakes when they happen in Yellowstone?

    I really don't know how the wildlife reacts, but everyone here is starting to wonder what's next. We had another one 3.3 yestereday. Nothing big but these are the first I have seen here like this. Nothing damaging yet. Hope it stays like that.

    Oh my me too.
    I have been thinking about you and hopefully this just seems scary and is nothing to worry about.

    Poor animals, I bet it gets them all upset.

    Yeah and the funny thing is that the animals and birds seem to know when it is comong to. I have been through some quakes a lot bigger than these and hope I don't see them again.

    All you can do is to hang on and go for the ride and hope ya make it if a big one hits. In reality there isn't much else you can do is there.

    I wanted to read up on the quake activity and I will share this article, thought it was pretty good. Even talks about the way some animals reacted and gives advise on what you should have ready in case of a big one.

    Yep, that article says it all. Some folks here kind of laughed at me when I told them that we are sitting on a powder keg here. Like it says, those moderate ones could be a precursor to a larger one. Hope not, but aint much anyone can do to stop it if it is indeed coming is there.

    Earthquakes.
    Now escaped cons. What next?
    Be careful out there.

    Yellowstone National Park, Mont. — More than 100 armed park rangers and federal agents on Monday searched tourist-packed Yellowstone National Park for two convicted killers who escaped from an Arizona prison and their suspected accomplice.

    Efforts to find the trio have intensified after one of the inmates was linked to a double homicide in New Mexico.

    The rangers patrolled campgrounds on the sprawling 3,472-square-mile park that spans Montana and Wyoming.
    Park employees are not yet handing out flyers at the entrances, but are asking tourists they meet to be on the lookout for inmates Tracy Province and John McCluskey, as well as suspected accomplice Casslyn Welch.
    There will be, however, some campers tucked deep in the rugged wilderness who will likely be unaware of the manhunt.
    “They just don’t have any regular access to any news because of the remote nature of the place,” park spokesman Al Nash said. “The bottom line is, it’s safe, everything’s open and park visitors should not be unduly concerned.”
    The U.S. Marshals Service believes Province has separated from McCluskey and Welch. Authorities don’t believe any of them have wilderness survival skills, so it’s possible they could be staying in campgrounds and at truck stops.
    “They are very dangerous individuals, very desperate individuals, and the longer they’re out there, the more desperate they become,” said Thomas Henman, supervisory deputy with the U.S. Marshals Service in Phoenix, on Sunday.
    An estimated 30,000 people will enter the park on Monday, Nash said. The park has 1,800 campsites and 2,150 hotel rooms that were mostly full last night. “So that makes it a really big and busy place,” he said.
    Last week, the park announced a record 957,000 people visited the world’s first national park in July, putting it on track to meet or exceed last year’s record of nearly 3.3 million visitors. July is the busiest month, followed by August.
    Province, McCluskey and Daniel Renwick escaped from a private, medium-security Arizona State Prison near Kingman on July 30 after authorities say the 44-year-old Welch threw wire cutters over the perimeter fence. Welch is McCluskey’s fiancee and cousin.
    The three later kidnapped two semi-truck drivers at gunpoint and used the big rig to get away, authorities said. The group left the drivers unharmed in the truck at a stop just off Interstate 40 in Flagstaff and then fled. Renwick was arrested Aug. 1 in Colorado.
    The manhunt intensified Saturday after forensic evidence linked at least one of the inmates to the killings of an Oklahoma couple. Authorities would not say which inmate.
    The badly burned skeletal remains of Linda and Gary Haas — both 61 and from Tecumseh, Okla. — were found in a charred camper Wednesday morning on a remote ranch in eastern New Mexico. Their pickup truck was found later 100 miles west in Albuquerque.
    Province was serving a life sentence for murder and robbery out of Pima County, Ariz. McCluskey was serving a 15-year prison term for attempted second-degree murder, aggravated assault and discharge of a firearm out of Maricopa County, Ariz.
    Renwick had been serving a 22-year sentence for second-degree murder.
    Publicizing their photographs in newspapers and on television, including a segment Saturday night on “America’s Most Wanted,” has helped generate tips, investigators said. A series of billboards featuring the three are also planned.

    There is a reason there is so many hotsprings and geysers.

    The dome is still rising.

    Not the caldera, but the magma chamber may well be the largest in the world.

    I would have never guessed about the geysers.

    I hope I am around to see it blow. I have a ring side seat and would love to see the show. Besides if it were to blow right now there would be no place I could go as all roads would be blocked and the airport shut down as no planes could fly in the ash cloud. Not to menion I would not be able to even get to the airport.

    I also monitor the Seismic activity in this area. The amount of activity in the Tetons and Yellowstone would amaze you.
