I hear that under Yellowstone/Montana. . .

Is a ginormous hot spot that could potentially blow (no accurate way to measure that kind of force/pressure) with the force of a gazillion nuclear bombs and devastate all life on earth.

So. . .what are ya'll planning to do about that?

And the sun may not light up tomorrow, so what's your point?

I'm actually planning for it. I would look for the challenge of living in a holocaust world. As long as the first eruption doesn't kill me I'm down with Yellowstone blowing it's top. I'm also down with a super plague that kills three out of four people as well. Just as long as one of the three isn't me.

Ah...the chances are slim. Life is a risk. I don't fixate on the risks. I try to minimize them or at least plan for them, but I don't let them control my life. The chances are greater of getting hit by a tornado in "tornado alley" USA, but many folks still live there and have lived great lives. Make the most of each day!

Those of us living in the greater yellowstone caldera contribute a great deal to the state's economy in that alcoholism almost equals that of the state of alaska; and the alocohol tax supprts much of state government. The caldera is rising three times faster now than it has since the taking of measurements started which means that it is going to most likely blow sooner rather than later. Heavy drinking helps us disremember this unpleasant fact of life.

I think you need to stop drinking just a little bit. I think Dillon is outside the caldera range. Though you are close so it should be a good show.

How does that serenity prayer thing go?

Accept the things you can't change.
Change the things you can.
Have the wisdom to know the difference.

Well, at least if Yellowstone blows I'm probably upwind from it.
Sorry, Minnesota!

I don't know about the drinking, , , but if this thing is as big as they say, , Dillon is gone, like poof, Ok, I'll have that drink now.

Dillon sits right smack on top of the caldera; in point of fact the ground temperature here is closely akin to top dead center of the caldera. Due to the higher ground temp I have seen people golfing on new years day in shirt sleeves at the local golf course.

I see people golfing in shorts on new years day in Minnesota as well. Though I don't think it's due to a caldera hot spot. It might have something to do with the fact that they just drank a case of beer.

Everything that I have seen or read about the super volcano says the caldera is inside the park boundaries. I am not saying it isn't hot on the ground in Dillion but it isn't associated with the Yellowstone Super Volcano.
