THE REALLY BIG ONE

When my beautiful and smart daughter moved to Seattle recently I was happy and proud of her achieving the things in life she was pursuing. After all she is a professional geologist with a Master Degree, a California State Professional Licensee and has an unbelievable positive outlook on life. She is doing great and having lots of fun there. She is very happy. I was too, until I read the following article in the New Yorker. It is about “The Really Big One” and it is one of the most intriguing science based articles I’ve read recently, written by Kathryn Schulz, staff writer of “The New Yorker”. She won the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing and a National Magazine Award for “The Really Big One”, her story on the seismic risk in the Pacific Northwest.
