Now looking at the potential of humans (including myself) with regard to understanding complex natural phenomena.

Arrived home last night after a 2 week travel related disconnect. I see the thump in L.A.
Local news is totally involved with a rock slide which has cut off the Olympic destination of Whistler (highway closed for at least 5 days).
Looked for any local tremors around that time: no joy.
I am assuming that the trigger for this should show up on seismic records and possibly the impact on the road below would be recorded on nearby stations (the roadbed is severely fractured now and the first action will be to bring down more unstable rock).
