I had to avoid a dangerous very large rotating, golf ball hail producing storm that was spawning other storms around it a few days ago. Luckily I was in the firebird.
I guess if I was in the leaf I could have sat there just to see what golf ball size hail would do to a leaf.
Thunderstorms here aren't like thunder storms in MA. I remember living on the east coast and people freaking out over pea size hail. Pea and dime size here is a regular occurrence.
New England thunderstorms are maybe an inconvenience, here they can kill you.

I have no problem pumping gas and diesel with out electricity. I have a 37 gallon diesel tank that's gravity feed, my diesel suburban can dispense diesel from its 42 gallon tank, plus three 5 gallon diesel cans then for gasoline I have my trailer mounted 17.5kw generator trailer its 16.5 gallon tank can gravity feed fill cars or gas cans, three 5 gallon gas cans plus a small 2 gallon can for 2 stroke gas for the chain saws and weed eater.
I can go for a few days with out needing liquid fuel.

Keep a bicycle handy.

No one's going anywhere if all the bridges and overpasses collapse.

I don't have any bridges or over passes that you have to go over unill I try to head out towards roswell, Lubbock, Amarillo, ft Sumner and some going to Tucumcari.

I was speaking more generally. I know we don't all live on a subduction zone.

We do all live in peril of Electric Discharge Machining from outer space. The Grand Canyon for example.

Do you think the grand Canyon may have been formed in part by electric discharge from space?

Of course. It's a Lichtenberg figure:

Quote:
Satellite images, as well as pictures taken by astronauts in orbit, seem to indicate that the Grand Canyon is an enormous Lichtenberg figure, in other words, a gigantic lightning scar. As the Electric Universe hypothesis suggests, electric discharge machining (EDM) might account for the Canyon's appearance: steep walls, thousands of layers, brachiated side canyons at practically every scale, and periodic, hemispherical "nips" cut into each rim.
The Grand Canyon: Part One



See the white stuff? that's snow on the Kaibab Upwarp. How could water erosion cut through the change in elevation at right angles to the slope? There would be 1300 cubic kilometers of debris at the mouth of the Colorado

Not saying it's likely to happen anywhere tomorrow of course, but the North hemisphere of Mars was eroded 6 miles deep and the material was deposited in the Southern hemisphere.

I'm not ruling it out, the guy that came up with the idea has either a doctorate or PhD in geology.
I know the establishment likes very, very slow boring change over time with the occasional biblical flood or space rock as to how they like to explain things.
Use the status quo to explain most things, ignore anything that doesn't fit.
I think science should work the other way, put things in the comfort zone that belong in the comfort zone and focus more on the unexplained don't be scared of it. What's the worst that could happen, maybe learn something?

It's one of those things that only makes sense until you take a step back and look at it.
That doesn't look like slow steady erosion, it looks more like something else entirely.

Ya think?

I mentioned Mars. Other bodies that exhibit distinctly different hemispheres include our Moon, with a barren face tidally locked to Earth and a rugged backside. And Iapetus, a moon of Saturn, with a blacken hemisphere and a light hemisphere. With it's equatorial ridge and polygonal flats, it's the weirdest place in the Solar system; even moreso than Phobos.

http://enterprisemission.com/moon6.htm



edit:
Maybe that's a step too far. For instance, the black patch on Iapetus is an ellipse that wraps 240 around the equator, not hemispheric.

I have to accept that I've gone off topic. Maybe this will help:
