  4. Well, I hope Gaia puts our lights out before we kill off any more of her creatures, that's for sure.

  5. All creatures come and go. It's been going on since before we got here and will continue after we're gone. The trilobites were around for 300 million years. I imagine after the first 200 million they thought they'd be around forever. :)

  6. Har-har....

    I'm in the middle of updating tonight's Matt Simmons post with a lot of links and a little discussion of what I think of The Oil Drum's "debunking"... concentrating on the short-term murderating going on. I bet the trilobites didn't extinctify nearly as many species and individuals as we do.

  7. Yeah, the trilobites pretty much had the run of the place - not much else to extincify.

    Perseid meteor shower peaks Thursday night. Could be up to 50 per hour.

  10. Oh, Mister North, THIS ONE rocked! I was freakin' that the videographer was gonna run too and mess it all up at the end. BEAUTIFUL!

  11. Looks like the ones we used to get in Wisconsin.

    The videographer quit too soon. A couple minutes later the 70-80mph winds would hit and the rain at an intensity of 2-3 inches per hour!

    Fortunately they were short lived, 15 - 30 minutes or so, mitigating some of the damage.

    I actually miss them!

  12. We used to get some like that up above Auburn, on the road to Grass Valley... well, actually, also above the road quite a way, but up there anyway. So near and yet so far from Sacrapimento.

  13. One summer I was heading up to Carr lake for vacation. There was one huge thunderhead hanging above the Sierras. At ever turn in the road i tried to calculate if it was near where I was going. As soon I was convinced it wasn't a new view made me think otherwise.

    I was about 3 miles from my campsite when I drove under the edge of the cloud. The sun was still shining brightly, streaming in from the west under the cloud. It started sprinkling so I stopped and got out to move some of my gear under my canoe to keep it dry. Suddenly it was if someone let go with 50 fire hoses at me. I only had time to clamber up under the canoe at which point I was already soaked to the bone. Shortly the dirt road turned into a roaring muddy river as I sat out the downpour under the canoe. After about half an hour it let up enough to get back in the cab and drive on to my campsite.

    Every day, around 4:30 PM for the whole week a big storm would hit and I would have to retreat to my tent for an hour or so. It was awesome watching the clouds move across the mountains with the peaks tearing pieces of clouds off and swirling them around on the lee side before sending them racing off to catch up with the main cloud.

  14. One day I was out on the lake fishing in my canoe. My dog was with me and when it started to rain the goof got up and jumped out of the canoe to get out of the rain!
    LMAO!
