    Now for my musical offering. It now being Sunday, December 7, the day that will live in infamy, I offer a piece of music that pretty much fits the Pearl Harbor attack, the third movement of Tchaikovsky’s Pathetique Symphony. I don’t know about you, but to me, it sure suggests the receiving end of an air raid even though Tchaikovsky died ten years before the Wright brothers got off the ground. The heavy devastation comes at around the halfway point.

      I hadn’t heard this one before. Yes, it really fits the day.

    The peace and tranquility that can be nature. We all need to spend a little time there.

    soils throughout Cascadia have something called the M layer, for Mount Mazuma which used to be where crater lake is now. soil columns through out greater Vancouver still have the M layer of ash and is used as a handy time scale. Makes you think and wonder at the violence of that eruption. Are they ever really extinct?

      Remember Mt St Helens?

        We heard it in West Vancouver, flew to Calgary the next day and saw the anvil shaped cloud blowing toward Idaho, really spectacular.
