I didn't know Crater Lake in Oregon was for sale. Was it on E-bay? I wish I'd known, because I would likely have put in a couple of bids myself. If you don't mind me asking, what did you give them for it?
Umm... were you planning on keeping it indoors, once it's been delivered? It's just that it's a volcanic caldera and that future eruptions are quite likely? Could make a bit of a mess.Did you also get the Old Man of the Lake, thrown in as part of the deal too?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Man_of_the_Lake
Apparently a seiche isn't necessarily tidal - it is a resonance in a lake. A bit like if you make waves in a bath at the right speed those waves get larger and larger until the floor gets wet, and you get shouted at.According to wikipediahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SeicheThey can be driven by wind, or small earthquakes, They will have a much longer period than other waves in a lake, and so in a big lake they may appear like tides. Apparently in Lake Eire they can get up to 5m high with a period of about 16 hours.
