Liquefaction and Other Worries

Things To Worry About         

1) Back fat
2) Did I turn the coffee pot off?
3) The e-mail fired off in irritation and haste
4) Liquefaction

Things I have some control over: back fat, coffee pot, e-mails
Things I have no control over but am being told I should “be haunted by” – liquefaction.

“All Alaskans should be haunted by liquefaction.” Michael West, state seismologist, Anchorage Daily News, March 24, 2014

Liquefaction: a phenomenon in which the strength and stiffness of a soil is reduced by earthquake shaking i.e. solid ground turns into jello.
