I think its going to blow in the near future.

Today's event was steam. Magma or hot gas is rising towards the surface, melting the snow pack and glaciers on the mountain, running down into the crater, contacting the heat source and causing a giant steam plume.

They have a GPS unit on the dome......which HAS to be a survey grade unit with a base station........at least $40K......It'll measure the z coordinate(elevation) and give them indications of the pressure building under the dome as it raises (cm accuracy). Between that and the seizmic equipment and cameras, I'd be curious to know how many thousands of $$ in equipment will be melted when it goes?

Magma and gas will continue to build pressure and this baby will give us some fireworks. Taco.....get your snow shovel ready.

Can we pay someone with a brain cloud to jump in it and appease the gods or something?

gotta love a nice Joe vs. the Volcano reference....

Maybe they just need some fat island guys to dance around the mountain with orange aluminum cans strapped to their bodies.

I love watching all the local news casts showing the morons who are flocking to the Volcano to watch it erupt... One guy was quoted as saying "I'm here to watch this wonderful natural catastrophe..."

Dumbass...

They were interviewing people getting off a plane in Seatac this morning who saw the steam erruption from the sky out the side windows. To my suprise one of the witnesses was proudly displaying her chiefs apparel. Must be geared up for MNF.

Honestly... It's hard to make fun of you guys in good conscience. You guys were talking Superbowl walking into this season saying that Gunther is the answer and that the offense won't skip a beat.

If I wanted to feel like a total creep, I could drive to local house fires and laugh at the people escaping with their valuables...

You're a Broncos fan, I wouldn't put that above you. Raider fans commit arson, Bronco fans laugh at the victims. :)
