  1. Either Guatemala is STILL rock & rolling, or I think something just broke loose down below…

    Check LA 12 @ 19:59 CDT

    Again, it’s on all of the helicorders in one form or another.

  2. Makes me hear a round/medley/remix of
    “Downpressor Man” and “Burnin’ Ring of Fire”…

    “Downpressor Man
    Where you gonna run to?

    […bound by wild desire]

    You gonna run to the sea
    But the sea will be boiling

    […a burning ring of fire]

    When you run to the rocks
    The poor rocks will be melting

    […down, down, down]

    You drink your big champagne and laugh

    […and the flames went higher]

    You can’t bribe no one
    Downpressor Man
    Them no want no money
    Downpressor Man
    ‘Cause money get funny

    […and it burns, burns, burns…]

  3. There area two active volcanos in the same area as the earthquakes. View cams, in the last link, during Guatemala daytime. Cams usually automatically update still-pictures every 20-30 seconds.
