Stop the Attack on the Appalachian Orogeny!11 February, 2010
We just got our first major winter storm (well, first one down in the valley (which is actually the Wyoming Valley and the Lackawanna Valley (but people are lazy here (for instance, Luzerne County Community College is known throughout the valley as LCC)))) for about three years. Almost ten inches here in Wilkes-Barre. So what did I do?
Well, I disabled a snowblower (the little old lady two houses down lets us use her snowblower if we also dig her out). I shoveled snow. I made pizza (don’t worry, this is not a Thursday Gourmet post). And I designed a truly geo-geeky anti-mountain top removal mining poster. I don’t think it’ll be all that popular. After all, without looking it up, how many of you know what an orogeny is?
