Just me and the wildlife. The wildlife is peaceful. There is a dog that comes by every now and again. I think he lives around here. Not sure if he has an owner yet.

Can anyone recommend a water filter that is not too expensive?

Thanks.

You really should speak with someone who knows about water purification, and just filtering alone will not remove those nasty kritters.

Quote:Water Filters:
Water filters are a complicated topic because there are so many models available (over 2,500 different models manufactured by more than 500 companies), and because there are so many types of filtration strategies and combinations of strategies used. The basic concept behind nearly all filters, however, is fairly simple. The contaminants are physically prevented from moving through the filter either by screening them out with very small pores and/or, in the case of carbon filters, by trapping them within the filter matrix by attracting them to the surface of carbon particles (the process of adsorption).
There are three main types of filters, and sometimes more than one are combined into a single unit. You will read about micron or sub micron filtration. This is a measure of how good the filter is at removing particles from the water - smaller is better. A micron is a unit of measure - one micron is about 1/100 the diameter of a human hair. A filter that removes particles down to 5 microns will produce fairly clean-looking water, but most of the water parasites, bacteria, cryptosporidia, giardia, etc. will pass through the pores. A filter must trap particles one micron or smaller to be effective at removing cryptosporidia or giardia cysts. Viruses can not be physically removed by any filtration method.
A benefit of all home filters is that they are passive. That is they require no electricity to filter the water - normal home water pressure is used to push the water though the filter. The only routine maintenance required is periodic replacement of the filtration element. As long as the cost of the replacement filter elements is reasonable, the cost of owning a even a high-end water filter can be quite low if you look at the cost over several years and compare it with other solutions.

This quake/eruption is a 4.2, and Eyjafjallajökull was a 4.0, so I am assuming we can expect much worse that wha was experienced previously. doom.jpg

Wait, cancel the doom:

As of 15 April, the eruption (Eyja...) was not large enough to have an effect on global temperatures like that of Mount Pinatubo and other major past volcanic eruptions... (from wikipedia).

Thats like 500 tremors a day thats 250 tremors every 12 hours thats 125 tremors every 6 hours and thats about 20 tremors an hour!

No doubt thats actually one continuously rumbling never ending earthquake of varying degrees of severity!

I'll re-pin this if volcanic doom levels increase.

Varying depths from 25 KM - 0.1 KM?

Iceland volcano: Magma moving towards new volcanic system

The magma from Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano could be moving towards another large volcanic system.

Data recorded by a team from the University of Cambridge suggests that 50 million cubic metres of molten rock has moved in the last 24 hours.

If it continues on a northern trajectory it could feed into the Askja volcanic system, potentially triggering a large eruption.

Prof Bob White said: "It's headed straight for it."

But he cautioned that volcanoes were hard to predict.

"It's moving at about 4km a day towards Askja, and if it keeps going it will get there in a few days," he told BBC News.

The eruption is the latest in a series at the Tungurahua volcano in the Andes after months of inactivity.

A small eruption under Vatnajökull

İmage

A small eruption under Vatnajökull, which is now completed, resulted altitude southeast of Bárðarbunga observed for the first time yesterday. This says Magnus Tumi Gudmundsson geophysics professor. Ice melted in the eruption in Grímsvötn probably ran he says.

Magnus Tumi flew along with other scientists with TF-SIF last night when the altitude was observed and then again this morning. Altitude had not changed during this time. They are three and are rounded and a total of five miles. Magnus Tumi considers the dynamic that caused the eruption there was so search dyke which now extends into the caldera fault.

"There has probably been a little soda. Dynamic there has probably sought in this direction for a short while and then progress has taken its course and it stopped very quickly or faded pretty fast. But what happened to the water? There might have been in Grímsvötn. We Grímsvötn watched and enjoyed it, and it's not unusual to see there. This is no more water than that Grímsvötn just like this rise a bit and it will not be much seen it. than if it had slipped through the passage into the catchment Jökulsárgöng mountains it should now be observed now. And this is, however, that much water on the whole it had not been done at IMO's water meters on Upptyppingar and beyond. "

Eruption of Papua New Guinea's Tavurvur Volcano!

PNG volcano Tavurvur eruption may disrupt Australian flights

A MAJOR volcanic eruption in Papua New Guinea this morning could disrupt flights to and from Australia.
The Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre in Darwin is monitoring the ash cloud from Tavurcur on PNG’s East Britain Island, which is slowly drifting southwest.
Senior meteorologist Ian Shepherd said they were watching the cloud closely and providing advice to airlines.

Eruption Started Between Barðarbunga and Askja in Iceland

İmage

It appears that an eruption has begun in the region between Bárðarbunga and Askja, close to the northernmost point of the earthquake swarm that begun almost 2 weeks ago. This would put it within the Askja fissure zone in part called the Holuhraun Lava Field – the same place where cracks were spotted in the land surface yesterday and today. There aren’t many details yet, but it looks like a basaltic fissure eruption based on the image (see above and below) on the Mila.is webcams: Bárðarbunga 1 and Barðarbunga 2. Right now it looks like the second webcam has the best view of the eruption.
