    We may be safe from hurricanes.  But growing up in eastern Colorado, I feared tornades.  One killed a neighbor.

      Then there's the Yellowstone caldera. I grew up in Montana so we learned about it at an early age.

      I have some dear friends who retired to Long Boat Key (Sarasota). They’ve owned their place there for years and were always (annoyingly) talking about it as “paradise”. I visited them last Fall and I had to roll back all of my eye rolls. It is one of the most stunningly beautiful places I’ve visited.  They’ve moved to higher ground with family in Sarasota and have a generator. Lost their power about three hours ago but cell phones are still working.

    Well, Tampa is usually one of the fewer hit places in Florida, so after this one passes, it should be safe for a while. I have been tempted to move there the older I get. I already have family and friends living there. Waiting to hear from them on the other side of the storm.

    I can't help but wonder if Pat Robertson will view this likely global-warming-caused environmental catastrophe as 'god's retribution' for the evil act of illegally and immorally rounding up legal migrants under false pretenses and shipping them off to Martha's Vineyard as a cruel, deplorable political stunt to gin up the red hats and 'stick it to the libs'?

    Colorado occasionally gets moisture from Pacific hurricanes that come up the Gulf of California and come over the desert as part of the summer monsoon. We had one such episode a few weeks ago.
