Tsunami Precaution


The Tsunami in Samoa is unsettling to say the least.   With the body count cresting over 100 victims, it had to be a horrific situation.  So far, the tsunami's have occurred in far away places - the Indian and South Pacific Oceans.  But an earthquake off of the Eastern Seaboard is just as likely.

I've actually seen what happens when the ocean washes into a home over on Marblehead Neck during one of the October storms that have hit the New England Area in the last twenty years.  In that case, about $100K worth of antiques were ruined.  But that was just a storm surge... A tsunami is a whole other wave, with its own energy.

I suppose that it is only a matter of time when any coastal area gets hit.  Maybe I'll keep the Herreshoff Columbia Tender loose on the trailer in the driveway for now on.  Just in case.

It seems in the aftermath of a tsunami, scientists flood us with tidal waves of predictions. And though ‘they’ are unable to forecast a specific date, an article “Atlantic Tsunamis” written in 2005 (grandchronicles.com) outlines what we can expect when the big one hits. The Atlantic Ridge, will be devastated. The good news is there will be many events leading to the main event so we have a good chance of enough advance notice to be ready. I prefer to see the glass half full and all that good stuff. I know absolutely nothing about boats or ships or sloops but I would opt for the driveway.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           ~
Maria -
If you can tell us when the Tsunami is going to hit, we'll save you a seat in the Tender.

I had me a tsunami of sorts in the rest room of the Route 55 Big Boy burger joint. Had a bad crawdad po' boy and nearly blew out the bottom of my colonoscopy. They had to post warning signs, some of the yellow murder scene tape was afixed to the scene of the great storm. The locals that knows of it call to mind the Chickesaw River floodin' of '55.
