Seattle Superstorm

There is a lot of talk about extreme weather in the Northwest, inspired by our record-breaking precipitation of late.  It turns out that the Science Fiction channel, working with climate scientists at Oregon State, has produced a video to reveal the kind of weather we might expect during the next century.   For those of us living in Seattle, this work is a stark reminder of our vulnerability to more extreme weather as the earth's climate changes.  Click on picture, if you aren't afraid.  (Hint:  skip your brunch at the Space Needle)

LOL, good one Cliff. I actually thought my husband had posted this blog, since we did watch that movie the other night.
