PIC OF THE DAY: Rockslide On The Hudson

A few weeks ago, a massive slab of the Palisades over in New Jersey fell and crumbled to the ground. It was such a large mass of rock that the event was actually recorded at Columbia University's seismic station just a mile south of the point on the river (near Alpine, NJ).  The TIMES has an article today about this rare geological event, the large of its kind in more than 25 years.  This, along with today's heat wave, is a simple reminder of the power of nature.
