Well...here it is.
The eve of possible destruction. A day many people have feared and wondered about for a decade.
I realized I am on a potential front-row seat to watch the impending doom, seeing as how I am within death zones for not one, but TWO supervolcanoes. Yellowstone and Long Valley, which is like two hours from me. Yikes. I didn't know THAT when I signed the lease!
I also live in a moderate flood zone, and in amidst multiple active fault lines.
If it's gonna happen, I'm probably screwed. And then my last thought would be irritation that I spend money prepping instead of going to Vegas.
Based on my day, it would be par for the course.
I'm fine meeting my maker. I've done more good than bad in my life.
But I don't think the end will come tonight, rather than a date to signify when the end began.
Every civilization has fallen. And I am a believer that history repeats itself.
Climate change is going to change the shape of our country in the next 50 years. There is already wars that seem unending, droughts, famine, illness.
I am sure there will be people on the planet who believe their world did end tonight. People who lose a loved one in a random act of violence or accident. People in the area of a natural catastrophe.
I've witnessed things happening that I have said never would. Things I would've staked my life on.
Things are not good in this world. Otherwise strong marriages being slowly shredded apart. Loved ones being abused by spouses. Everyone struggling with some kind of issue.
As Motown would ask..."What's goin' on?"
