If you watched our live show yesterday you would know that our guest disappeared shortly before we started the live show. We met about 30 minutes before the show started so we could iron out our plans for the show. James turned up on time with headphones set on and told us "there is a huge storm going on where he is based in Costa Rica". "If I didn't have the headset on we would have a real issue with sound as the rain was pounding on..." he said. "I am going to make some coffee and be right back." Were his last words...
That was the last we heard of him.
Throughout the show while DJ was holding the fort and saving the day, I was frantically trying to get James back; I called, I skyped, I emailed, called again, left messages, and as they probably say in Costa Rica - NADA. And Yes I was doing all of that while trying to have one ear tuned to what Donnell was talking about.
Of course we were hoping his disappearance was due to a power cut or loss of Internet connection. But now I am not so sure...
After the show has ended, and still no words or sign of life from James, I went on line to see if I can find any news on the storm in Costa Rica, here is what I found.
"Mysterious Iridescent 'End of Times' Cloud Phenomenon Spotted in Costa Rica" read the title on ABC news. The official explanation:
"The colourful luminescence is caused by the sun's light being refracted by water droplets and ice crystals in the cloud, said, Eladio Solano, a meteorologist with Costa Rica's National Meteorological Institute, according to Costa Rica media outlet Teletica News."
I don't buy it... do you? As this so called mysterious cloud appeared over head an earthquake hit right below it on the ground...
What are the odds?
This is strange indeed... Before the show aired we were discussing doing a show about Japan - In my mind I recalled the events that lead to the radiation disaster we now all share... how experiments hitting the ionasphere triggered or amplified the Japanese earthquake.
Is that what is going on here?
The Weather Underground website has a great live interactive mapping tool – This picture shows the storm for the region around Costa Rica.
