Heralding Natural Disaster

Tuesday, May 1, 2007 7:27 | Filed in Oddities, The Pickards

So I said at the beer festival we were probably due an earthquake somewhere. And we got one in the UK over the weekend. So last night a mate was saying that I had the ability to forecast (or prophesise) natural disaster. So I said:

Don’t be silly. I said there would be a volcanic eruption as well. Do you see any signs of that?

Except that as I was speaking, Mount Etna was erupting. So I’m left with several possibilities:

  • It’s all coincidence
  • I’m able to herald natural disaster
  • I’m able to cause natural disaster by thinking about it
  • The Big Guy is messing with my head

What next? I’m tempted to suggest that there will be some weather-related disaster, but I don’t know if I dare…

    How about suggesting it’s going to rain £50 notes – that would be nice…

    Fair enough Jake, I’ll tell people to blame you. All I know is that a couple of dozen miles away I slept right through it without noticing a thing!

    You couldn’t predict that I’m going to win the lottery could you?

    Well, there must be something in it- was the tornado in Kansas down to your magic powers?

    [...] It appears that after initially predicting earthquakes and volcanic eruptions — which there obviously were, my crack about the next one being weather related came true [...]

    In the south we have hurricanes and many pleope are not prepared, the hurricanes range from a category 1 to a category 5. You would think anyone raised in the south would know better. When we learn one is heading our way we get ready for it. Schools open for those who seek shelter, no pets allowed.Bring a pillow and blanket. We would get in the hall closet as it was center of the house and away from windows and doors. We used pillows to cover us. Some friends of ours who lived in a mobile home always came to our house for shelter, they were from the north and had not experience a hurricane. PoppyKansas City, Mo.
