I guess this something to think about, but I don't dwell on stuff like this for sure. The absolute worst thing that can happen is death. We can't stop this, so live life...

A bunch of hyperbole and misrepresentation of data.

Nothing's certain but death and taxes... and can't stop mother nature.

I read about this online last night. According to the feds site that tracks activity, Yellowstone is in the green or "normal" range with no mention of any unusual activity. (sorry, can't remember the site reference). It sounds like the blog where this latest scare comes from is just one guy's attempt to rile everyone up. When she blows, she blows.......nothing we can do about nature's forces. I, personally, don't worry about it

The Yellowstone super-volcano will blow . . . eventually. Those of us who live in Wyoming will be the lucky ones. Those who don't die immediately will have to deal with the collapse of society, (worldwide), and all its associated problems, such as finding food to eat. It will not be a pretty sight.

Concerned? Just remember what that wise person told us about the birds and flowers not caring about tomorrow? Neither should we.

Gee...that's strange; ever since I first noticed that the 'YFT' seismometer (the one monitoring the immediate area surrounding Old-Faithful Geyser) 'pegged' right at the very moments of both Tsunami's of 25 Dec 2004 and 28 Mar 2005, was sensitive enough to record the collapse of the mine in Utah on 6 Aug 2007 and went COMPLETELY off the scale on 9 Jul 2011 when the 9-pointer hit Japan, I am usually the first one to notice when things look nearly as alarming as the 'Prepper' felt compelled to post about.

I'm thinking whoever he/she is was just looking for attention.

I (hopefully) attached a picture here, of the seismometer record (from Old-Faithful) on the day of the Japan Quake on 9 Jul 2011.

It's clear to see that the fault/crust 'shifted' quickly and was over with just as quickly.

If the seismometer record the OP uploaded was accurate, NONE of us would be here to talk about it, as the entire infrastructure (electric, water, gas, communications, etc) would likely be completely GONE.

Most geologists agree that it is the North-Western (floor) edge of Yellowstone Lake which is 'bulging', rather than the South-Western corner...and that is because the Yellowstone 'hot-spot' is moving ever-so-slowly in a North-Eastern direction, but has nowhere to go thanx to the Absaroka Mountain Range.

The pressure will choose the least path of resistance, as it cannot (easily) go forward, nor can it go back where it came from.

My best guess is that West-Yellowstone would be 'ground-zero' for the next eruption; such a shame as she is a 'cozy' little town, if ever I've seen one...

Judging by the source, show is my guess. But if I'm wrong, then FRONT ROW SEAT!!!!
