Time to Sacrifice Another Virgin
« on: January 08, 2009, 04:40:14 PM »

 Volcano Gods are needing a sacrificial offering. Had a NEAT Tremor a little bit ago, where I was trying to scribe a line on a door frame, to locate the hinge dado. Wall kept moving away from me  :o :o :o :o

  Buildings in San Jose are cracked, houses are at the bottom of hills and mountains, roads have openings in them. It's about to get Plumm serious  ::) ::) ;D ;D

In case I don't see you again, it's been good knowing you.  One last effort of mortality to try.  Put a baseball in your pocket and when that volcano blows you up into the sky, see how far you can thow it.  :)

 The news is flooded with damage scenes. Some kinda serious, some so-so, some, just a mess to clean up. A few reports of kids in their rooms being smooshed.  ::) ::)
 Some places, no lights, no water. People running out into the streets.  ::) ???

  I believe there are very few virgins left here, also  ::) ::) ;D ;D

  Tom, it's not from the Volcano here, it's from around Poas Volcano, in the general area of the Aeropuerto.  ::) ::)

 On a more somber note, seems a Hotel has Tourists dead and missing. Many places cut off from communication due to roads being out.

  Lots of houses here, have minimal construction standards. Concrete materials are not as strong as you would expect. Shanty Town construction is common, here.  ::) ::)

  Right now, watching a large river, flooded with Forest debris and mud. It's gonna get ugly, once daylight gets here, tomorrow.  ::) ::)

 Thanks Marcel. A LOT of housing built "Stuck-in" the sides of hills. Not much for solid footing. Solid rock mountains are not real common, here. Mostly just dirt fr54om years of volcanic eruptions. We have layers of "Grit", grey colored very coarse sand, as we dig here. Sandy loam type mountains and hills. LOTS of rain on the Northern Caribbean side here. Saturated sandy terrain and shaky tremors, make a bad combination.

is that related to the earthquake or is it unrelated?Does the river run from the epicenter towards you?
I just saw on the news that two young boys were killed by a landslide :-\

 We have an outstanding view. Our place sits atop a large hill, that is situated within other large hills. We don't have steep cuts in the hillsides, as in other areas. That's how roads and housing is built, scrape a flat spot and build a house or road. Some places can have a "cliff" above them, several feet to 100 feet high.

  That is probably the scenario with the 2 you heard about, Paul. Landslides take out houses, or, cover them over.

  There was a helicopter touring the fault line, showing trees down, as the ground slid away, like Mt. St. Helens, downed timber, on a tiny scale .

  We are on the edge of the dry season, right now, so, it COULD rain, and that would be disastrous. IF it stays dry for a few days, it will allow rescue teams to try to reach areas isolated, from the rest of the area.

They felt it here, I didn't. What else is new. I never feel them. I am sure there is some reason, but I did here the gates rattling. Amy of course said the normal "Didn't you feel that!!!????"

Sigh, I must be comfortably numb.

No damage out here - and probably no virgins either. Bad time to have one, this time of year the land is so soaked that when you walk on the ground, it leaves puddles. Doesn't take much to break loose.

Never mind the fact that way too many very steep slopes are totally devoid of trees, and there isn't much rock in a lot of places. Just a matter of time before it all comes lose.

The building codes are very, very good here - but it doesn't deal with older construction, of course, and those who don't bother to follow the codes.

But, if built right, you can pick up a house with a crane.

So, how did I end up here anyway?

That is terrible news.  News that I'm surprised we don't hear more of from there. :(  As visitors, we were shocked at the structures so many people called home.

Poas Volcano was the most beautiful thing we experienced on our trip down to CR.  It's a large caldera volcano filled with water.  I sure hope that thing doesn't spring a leak. :o

One of our tour guides mentioned that all churches in CR have their doors facing west, I think. (Help me remember, Harold)  But the large church at Mt. Arenal is the only one that does not because west runs you right into the volcano.  In case of eruption, they did not want the congregation rushing toward the hot lava. ::)
I do what the little voices in my wife's head tell me to do.
