Well thats good cause I was gonna say that should that monster ever explode the deep south west of California as well as the deep south of the texas/Louisiana area will be safe from its initial and secondary kill zone. You guys, like me, would have to death with the year long ash cloud but would survive. Everything else west of the Mississippi will be gone.
But in another note, since your from San Diego are you by any chance a charger fan? They arnt my favorite team but their cool in my book.
