    Alvin, just wondering if you saw the 6.2 Baja Mexico quakes about 1 1/2 hrs. ago? Is it related? In fact there seems to be a small swarm going on at the West Coast Utah, Nevada, Northern California, Mexico.

    Thousands of sheep buried alive in snowdrifts – Video

    “Unprecedented” cold and snow in Iceland. Thousands of sheep (13,000) buried alive in snowdrifts is nothing short of disastrous. Snow in North Iceland in early September is not unheard of but snowfall of two to three meters overnight at this time of year—when the sheep are still in highland pastures—is highly unusual. Two to three meters (7-11 feet) of snow overnight! That’s a small taste of what the mammoths experienced.

    Could there be any deep connection between this and the La Paz, Mexico earthquake?

    Just wondering if there is any correlation between Popocatepetl and the 6.2 quake that hit the Gulf of California.
