About the only thing that makes me nervous is our government. So.....no, Yellowstone eruptions do not worry me.

I try very hard to never worry about anything over which I have no control.
If/when Yellowstone blows, we are dead, more than likely. There is nothing I can do about it, except, possibly, move. Since I can think of no other state where we would like to live, that just ain't gonna happen!
Besides, at my age, I am likely to die BEFORE it blows. Problem solved.

I figure if I live closer when the super volcano blows, it'll be over much quicker. I don't want to be stuck on the California coast with 30 million panicked lemmings when the sky darkens slowly.

We live on the line between immediate annihilation and survival in MN and I keep wondering where exactly that line is drawn.

And should we move across the street?

As fast as the fine rock dust made it from Mt. St. Helens to South Dakota years ago, I'm guessing we'll be "toast" before we know it if Yellowstone blows. No sense worrying about it.

It's probably better to live closer to it and die fast. If it blows the ash will block sun and everything, we'll most anyway will die a slow painful death. I have a cousin who moved to Bozeman for college and never left, much anyway. Ill have to ask him about all this.

I agree. Ground Zero is a better place to be in this case.

The danger here is the San Andreas and Hayward Faults. Actually any of the other faults will do some heavy damage here.

Pretty much agree with this, except I think moving will only delay the end slightly. If Yellowstone goes, it will be a global issue.
