There She Blows!

Well, Mt. Redoubt has done it again. One of the interesting things about living in Alaska is that we are surrounded by several active volcanoes. Mt. Redoubt is one that is pretty close to us and it has been rumbling for a few months now but, this week it finally blew. These two pictures are from some of the eruptions this week. Until today, we had been free from ashfall thanks to the wind direction and such but this morning there was another big eruption and we are now under ashfall advisory until 4pm today. Hopefully we won't get that's pretty much a pain to mess with. You can check out the Alaska Volcano Observatory and find all the details about current and past eruptions. It's pretty interesting.

Well, that's about it for today...more to come, more to come.
