in both area
Well, James we could use more rain on the plains being local also. Are you in hilly country by any chance...just wondering. I had to help my son one time do an geology report of where we live, we live essentiallyl on failry level ground which is all fill in from the Boring Hills Formation of blurpy volcanoes millions o fyears ago. there was an arguement though if this are is flat because an flood swept through it one time, and they are uncertain if Walters hill was an volcano or washed down rocky mountain. We have an lot of little streams in the area, cloest one to me is Kelly Creek...runs into Troutdale and into the Sandy River, which goes into the Columbia River. These little streams havewashed the area over to look more hilly then ti really is and I'm thinking the CAmas, Washington Fault line might be an extension of Kelly Creek over here...the main one crosses under teh Sandy River and towards Blue Lake headed into Portland about 3 miles. I think we are something like 6 to 10 miles from Troutdale. UFO territory to be sure...fly oversin both area, probably keeping track of the water contnet, to much "ash" and St. Helens is acting up.
I looked up yesterday's Topoloamgo, Mexico's 6.6 earthquake...this is an deep harbor port in the Gulf of Mexico....but guess what...., it's an convergence of three other major techonic plattes also...the one runs through Mexico, separates it, and the San Andres Fault. What's most interesting I find out is that it may be tied into the Lakeview, Oregon swarm also...and the North American Platte. The area is one of iron Ore deopsits and Shale...th eoil wells are mining shale to squeeze the oil out of it you know. They refill the hole with water supposedly...but people often ask if that's what sets of the daily constant swarms these areas are having, muck like Oklahoma, I've been told the oil companies have long time ago sold out the Canada of all people. Event the ones in California. Now I was reading this Native American book and an argument going on in Hopi land...by "herbert" and elder
Shaman...and he says...the area lies on known "Ley lines"....and supposedly when the "Gods" come riding into town on lighting bolts....they enter these Ley lines until they can emerge on top fo them...he says he thinks it's an very bad idea to even lat down sewer lines in the area. They have an "electrical" property linked to the atmosphere and mother eath that should not be distrubed. I have heard before that they have mined so much Iron out of Hopi land already that
it not longer draws these severe lightening storms that produce what little rain they get down there in the desert. Between th emining and the forrest fires I think our earth is doomed unless we change it...and do that now. Lack of trees is going to mean warmer climate...drier climate....less water...ungoldy high temperatures also. We should be listneing and heeding theri advice...nto writint it off as mythsor say so from an elder folk that don't know nothing...HA!,,,,we shall see in another few years.
I have replaced my batteries in my ear device and my little radio...so I'm ready for tonight's programs. Talk to you later on...have an good day!
