It's pretty intense so be warned.
All you that doth my grave pass by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now so you must be,
Prepare for death & follow me.

Ok. I'll probably start with Pulp Fiction, since I know my son has that one.

Today, however, I didn't watch that. Instead I pulled out Catch Me If You Can, which I always find a lot of fun. Young Leo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks as the youthful con artist Frank Abagnale and his pursuer.

I love that entire jet-age aesthetic.

Also it's a fine example of my favorite genre, Christmas-not-christmas movies.

Ha! You're right. I'd forgotten how much it keeps coming around to Christmas.

Have you seen The Holdovers yet? That's another Christmas-not-Christmas movie.

I have not but will look it up.

At the moment I'm weather watching.

It's alternately sunny rainy then snowing.

It's supposed to continue for several days.

I don't suppose you all are threatened with tornadoes this time of year? For us, the back & forth between warm and cold spells often results in bad storms. You learn to hate unseasonable warmth, because the leading edge of the inevitable cold fronts almost always brings tornadoes.

Also, when that sort of day is happening, you pray that the sun stays hidden. If it gets sunny between storm waves, the extra heat in the atmosphere juices everything up and makes the storms stronger.

Once the temperature is noticeably cooler, you can relax. Even if you're technically still under tornado watch, you know the storm front is beyond you once the chill starts.

We get thunder and lightening often and the occasional funnel cloud touches down but they are very rare.

We do get small earthquakes though.

The Cascadia fault goes off every 3 or 4 centuries, and that's the one you can't prepare for no matter how hard you try.

It's about a hundred years late.

There's a petrified forest on the coast that appears during heavy tidal events.

I haven't witnessed it in person but it's pretty spooky. https://traveloregon.com/things-to-do/t ... st-forest/

Oh, wow! I never heard of that before. I notice the woman posted her article on Halloween.

We have a serious fault around here, too, the New Madrid (pronounced MAD-rid in these parts). It's over around Memphis, and I think about it every time I cross the Mississippi River into Arkansas there. It last caused trouble in 1812, when it changed the course of the Mississippi and made it flow backwards for a while. It also created Reelfoot Lake (NW corner of TN) in the abandoned riverbed. They say it rang churchbells as far away as Boston. I have no idea what they think it would have measured on the Richter Scale, but you know it was a doozy. Not too many people died because the area was not heavily populated back then. But today it would be different. The New Madrid hasn't gone off since then, and people say it is overdue.

We also get little earthquakes in middle and east Tennessee. I never notice them, or maybe I assume it's rumbling from traffic or construction somewhere. But they do happen.

Not to minimize people's suffering but the only tragedy from geological and meteorological occurances is in relation to humans.

It really is just the planet scratching burping and passing gas like it always has and always will.

I was in the 1989 bay area for the Loma Prieta quake, 6.9 or 7.0, depending on who you ask.

It was exhilarating to say the least.

I remember that quake! My older son was an infant. We saw it on TV. A terrible quake. We lived in Virginia back then, the Shenandoah Valley.

I still find it amazing that a baseball game potentially saved hundreds of lives.

Oakland and San Francisco were set to play in the world series around the same time that the quake began, so many people weren't at work and off of the roads at rush hour.

Yes, I was watching that broadcast. The quake was caught on air.

It was so completely out of the ordinary that I often think that it was a dream.
