Costco and earthquake rants

Yesterday I went to yoga in the morning, finished transcribing my grandfather’s letters after that, and in the afternoon we all went to Costco. We put Mary and Ammon in the shopping cart together. At first Mary did not like sitting next to Ammon because he played with her band aid and kept patting her back. Mary is still slightly tentative around Ammon and almost always does not like him to touch her.

But at the end of our trip she did this!

Yesterday evening was the stake picnic. We stood in line for a long time and then discussed emergency preparedness with both sets of Andersons.

After we put the kids to bed Abe and I spent a long time researching 9/11 online. I found this website , Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, to be very compelling. Abe found the rebuttals to the website to be more compelling. Finally I fell asleep and Abe stayed up reading one of the NDE books that has my mom and me so fired up. He also read a bunch of online rebuttals to Visions of Glory.

Personally, I don’t see how the book is hurting anyone. You can go to any seismologist and see that we live in the middle of multiple fault lines. Our water line crosses the fault line nineteen times, and experts estimate that when the quake hits, we will be without water for THREE MONTHS. Not only that, but our roads will be impassable and the airport will be broken up, making it hard for planes to reach us. Also, when the quake hits, that dam up in Provo Canyon will burst and much of the Valley will experience flooding from that on top of liquefaction from the underground lake. The rocks tell us that this area has experienced major earthquakes every 350-400 years. The last major earthquake here happened 350 years ago. Do you think we should be prepared??? Do you think we should be spreading the word to others to be prepared???? Um, I think the answer to that would be yes.

Abe took today off to set up the home school room and get the basement ready for the food storage delivery.
