    That was just Arden (on one of his few and far between visits to the district) stomping his feet at the gays and the Governor.

    most people in Cayman do not realize we live effectively on a major fault line. We can all acknowledge the coming ‘big one’ for California, but we’re closer to a fault line than most in California…and our fault line is well capable of throwing out a mega quake. There is a theory that the 7+ from January (which BTW was only a high 5, low 6 as regards forces felt in Cayman due to distance) was a FORESHOCK, not the BIG ONE.
    But selling condo’s on a mega faultline zero feet above sea level? Not easy.
    So we’re not on one.

      everyone has internet. they must have researched before buying properties in Cayman. local people need plan B in case they become “Environmental refugees”.
      So “divorcing” mother England is not a good idea.

    Still say we need to organize mapping priority of the Cayman Trench and see what’s moving around. It’s been very active this year and we have no idea why.

    20,000 Earthquakes are detected by USGS each year, or ~55 every day.

    Crazy is a gentle word to describe someone who draws a correlation between a natural seismic event and two adults in love.

    Most likely aftershocks from the large earthquake at the beginning of the year… they can go on for a long time. Everyone should still keep prepared though… after all this is 2020!

      Not even close.
      When God speaks, there will be no doubt.
      After all, He is God.
      But let’s be honest, if He had raged at the behest of the religious crowd, there would be nothing left by now.
      I would say He has shown extreme restraint considering the bullshit that passes for truth today.
      When He is good and ready, He will speak. I am not looking forward to it to be honest, but we have left Him little choice.
