I am looking into a move to Wyoming or Montana. Still trying to get the ducks in a row. Yellowstone is not really a factor, other than I find that caldera to be one of the most beautiful places in the world, and being cozied up to it would only be a plus in the event of a massive eruption. If I was lucky, I would live long enough to witness the worlds best fireworks show, then lights out. Or I could die in the initial blast. Either is ok. Saves me the trouble of trying to plan out survival strategy for the aftermath. The last time, the wildlife in Nebraska died when the volcanic ash particles, like little shards of glass, shredded the alveoli in their lungs and drowned them in their own blood. Next time, the bison in the Lamar Valley will be the lucky ones. I pity those cattle in Nebraska.

Yep, desperate to get away and with no means of it as the roads and utilities will be of no use. Water systems will be broken and inoperable, and the infrastructre need fixing first. Power will be out as well, and remain out for some time. Imagine Just think, Irwin Allen could make a great movie of it!

I remember the 89 earthquake and that was bad enough
I hope I am out of here before the next big one hits.

I subscribe to this newsletter, due to an interest in space science. According to EarthSkyNews, you will be fairly warned of such an event:

A neat video by a geology professor that explains the habits, past, and future of the Yellowstone Volcano:

(This guy does all sorts of fun geology videos, both long and short.)

In a land of constant and intermittent "eruptions" of water, steam and other gases, a few very intermittent features have increased activity. I am not saying anyone is confused about what is happening but I'll restate that anyways. Perhaps to help a very quick / casual reader from getting a misimpression. No current lava surface events at Yellowstone. Reservoirs of it x miles deep (and moving slowly east) as it has been for a very long time.

I wouldn't let that void my move from commiefornicate to the State of Wyoming.
I am suffering more mental stress here that will kill me a lot more painful than an eruption that may occur when I am already dead from old age or natural causes.


Living here longer will BE more painful and kill me faster from either traffic collision, mental stress or heart attack and STRESS..


The rat race here is too much and out of control.

That's a pretty good video. Helps me understand the geomorphology of the area. Thanks for turning me onto him and his videos. I'll be watching more.
