    • Ben was getting the impression, that she was not happy with the delay, "I hope you understand, Miss Steelgrave, that this is a big undertaking and all voices need to be heard.  We have to wait until the spring thaw to allow all interested parties to come into town and have their say.  There will likely be objections and we will hear them out just like we do with anything we vote on.  It would be better if we had a town mayor who could preside over this but if we wait until the elections, it may take even longer.  From what I understand so far, this is something you would like to see happen as soon as possible."     @Flip
    • Nellie's "Chill Tonic" mixer should be a good test of Addy's resilience - she might well be the last one left standing.
    • Emeline can cater some, and will attend as well, and Addy will attend, she likes spiked punch!
    • A proposed plot for early spring of 1876...   The Ladies Society of Kalispell (working name until and if I think of something better) is going to be holding a hospital fundraising event at the hotel.  The guest speaker will be Leah Steelgrave.   Those of us involved (Javia, Flip and me) are still working out the details but we are planning to have the event end up with a bit of a melee thanks to Nellie Miggins adding some extra flavouring to the punch.  It will probably be held on a Sunday after church.   Here's what we've got planned so far... Arabella Mudd will be there, courtesy of Matt Wentworth who has already told her that he is going to send an invite. The Wentworth brothers will be helping to break up the melee (Mike, Sam, and Charlie are visiting Matt). Mike will accidentally rescue Arabella (again) Flip is going to work an idea he has into the plot as well.   I most of the ladies in town will be there and so if you character is going and you want to add to the plot.  Let us know here.   This is a work in progress.
    • "You sound like my parents now.'  Emeline laughed.  "They told me I couldn't keep a horse in my room, nor an elephant!"    She patted the horse's neck, then swung easily up into the saddle.  The mare was just the right size for her, and the saddle comfortable.  Between the gift itself and the circumstances, she couldn't remember a better present.  What she had gotten Barnabas was rather pale in comparison, but gift-giving wasn't a competition.   "She needs a name."  Grinning, she leaned forward to pat the horse's neck, then she suggested, "How about..Noel, for Christmas?"    @Flip

Summary

A very large earthquake strikes southwest Montana along the Yellowstone border. It is felt as far away as Kalispell. Stories and plots will revolve around the the town before and after the quake.

 

Theme
The theme for this episode will be major life upheavals - good and bad. These can be specific to the aftermath of the earthquake itself or ongoing personal stories.

 

Notes

In 1959, a 7.5 - 7.8 earthquake struck Montana at Hebgen Lake so there is a history for large quakes in the area. Should we want the epicenter at a distance (Hebgen would be approximately 450 miles from Kalispell), we might need to upscale the quake on the scale. If we want to set it closer, perhaps with an epicenter around Flathead Lake, we would have to downscale the size.

 

Earthquakes can and do occur in unusual areas, those not associated with seismic activity. For example, in 1811 - 1812, very large earthquakes struck the New Madrid area (near Memphis, Tennessee). The largest quake is estimated at around an 8.0. An large section of land dropped about three feet and the Mississippi River ran backward for a period of time to fill it in, creating Reelfoot Lake.

Sadly, no logical eruptions to be had in that area. However, I thought as a major event, a wild-west disaster film could be fun. Easy enough to have some of the remote ranch people in town (ranchers meeting, etc.). Should allow for some drama and mixing/matching of who writes with who. Of course, it depends on if we attract a few more players and all that for running this one.

 

What a way for a meet and greet!
