    Thanks for the video updates, rainbeaudais. When you refer to what is "normally dry land" do you mean year 'round or mainly during the winter months? Does the ground appear to be sinking in the vicinity of all these new methane eruptions?

      Hi amberlight…

      That area between the treeline and road is normally dry. Being on the edge of the swamp, it often has standing water with heavy rains, but water there is not a norm. It does hold water often enough that if anyone wanted to put something there, that they wanted to stay dry, they would need to build it up first with dirt. It's just simply a low area. I can't answer about the possibility of sinking there since I don't see that area on a regular basis.

      Wow, it speaks volumes how respectfully you credit Thad on your blog. It speaks on your character well. Like how we have to deal with Fukushima though, don't *blow your gasket* trying to put yourself in as a Superman, please. I mention that because like Japan, you will exhaust yourself chasing whats right while people who SHOULD be moving their asses (ie Govt officials, politicians, industry owners etc) are still stuck in denial and misinformation agendas. You will kill yourself with frustration, in your spirit. This is not a critique, I think what you are striving for is inspirational. Just don't get sucked down into the whirlpool, which really is not our creation. It can burn you out and you know it. Just measure your action. I think you are on the right track. You certainly are an example of action to me. Peace.

        @Anthony,

        Thad and I will never see eye to eye. We both know that, but, that being said, he has a lot to contrivute. I do wish he would work on his manner, but, hell who am I to cast stones?

        Thad did some very good work, and I give credit where it is due, and it is a very viable plan…at least from his perspective and that is underground.

        With this new event, my job is much harder, because we are now dealing with damages magnitudes greater than at the the time this article was hashed out.

        Thad is right though, we have to kill the underground source, before we can even think of doing anything else. The actions taken by ITASCA, TB, and their contractors was absolutely unforgivable, and even if not the cause of the 'Belch', then are culpable for not even issueing a warning to the residents that there may be a possibility of negative effects, and not issueing a forced evacuation on Friday for the 'T-Rex' exercise after five days of 'Thumpers' that had already aggravated the situation up to that point.

        One way or another, something proactive MUST be DONE, and stop the following directives, and actually grow some cajones, and kill this thing or buy out the residents, and then they can 'play' with it all they want!

        Just because Thad is a pain…doesn't constitute ignoring plausible and tested techniques that are known to work.

        I am here, and my blog exists to help, no funding, no donations..just to help.
