Eruptions


Several more eruptions over the last few days (one just a few hours ago). The ash from most of these have been dispersed by the prevailing winds to the northwest, away from any populated area. But the ash from one large eruption Thursday morning was carried southeast to Homer, which forced me to cancel my cello lesson there.

Although we have been under a constant alert, we weren't supposed to get any ash-fall here, so far. But Thursday afternoon, while the sun was shining and the sky was clear, we noticed a fine gray layer starting to buildup on the cars. We couldn't see any ash as it was falling, nor were there any visible clouds. Strange. Anyway, the winds overnight blew most of it off.

Not Pompeii, yet!
