In Maryland, late in the spring of 1816, the snow fell brown, and blue, and even red. Brown snow fell in Hungary that year and in the village of Taranto in southern Italy, where any snow is rare, the red and yellow snow caused great alarm.

And from Time to Time Its Surface Moves Around Well water grew turbid and hibernating snakes took up their warm-weather rounds. Groundwater levels rose and fell. Radon levels changed radically and sensors showed that the ground was tilting. It provides a measure of the energy released in an earthquake, determined from. seismographic readings taken in local and distant stations, but on an exponential scale rather than a linear one.
