More on Olympia

Living in Olympia means that when Mt. Rainier blows its top, we’ll have a great view of the show (at least until the ash hits). It also means that we’ll avoid the lahars http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lahar, the pyroclastic flow http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyroclastic_flow, and most likely the bombs http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lava_bomb.

At first, moving to the Ring of Fire didn’t even cross my mind after we’d decided to move here. Then it crossed my mind, and my wife’s mind, but we decided that if we were meant to move across the country, and into the end of the world, then we were obviously meant to go up with a big group of folk.

But now that we’re here, it turns out that if the volcanoes around here blow, and if a tsunami slams into the Pacific Northwest Coast, Olympia will escape all the major effects of those occurrences. Certainly, we’ll shake, if the Earth does, but all the major stuff will fly around on either side of the city.

Blessed! Blessed, I say.

I love Olympia.
