Researchers say it's nothing to be alarmed about, though.


but it is perfect for the doom and gloom crowd.

Its been planned over 6 months ago, but I'm taking the family on a road trip to my aunts home in Eastern Idaho, which usually includes a trip to Yellowstone, I've probably been there 4 times in the last 15 or so years. If it does happen then I guess I wont have to wait hours in California for the impending doom, I can get it over quick.
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

Dr. Robert Smith of the University of Utah is said to know more about the Yellowstone volcano than anyone else alive. For a long time he’s been monitoring satellite images for land bulges indicating underground activity. While he calls a Yellowstone earthquake from last year “the biggest earthquake in 30 years” he does not seem too concerned about what he’s been seeing from the seismograph readings based upon his 60 years of experience.

When Smith was asked about the possibility of the “big one” occurring soon he focused on probabilities:

If we were to have another big eruption, it would affect a large area, on the order of several states. But, as I said, that probability is very, very, very, very small. In my calculations it’s point zero, zero, zero, one percent.”
