We have been experiencing some of God's mighty and powerful acts around here!
Mt Redoubt has been acting up, first pouting for weeks and finally a full-blown temper tantrum.
The mountain erupted 15 times before we had ash fall here. So I guess we are doing pretty well, considering the mountain is straight across the inlet from us.
We started to get ash fall around 5: 30 yesterday, and it fell for only about 20 minutes. It covered the ground in gray stuff, falling in hard ash "pellets" and landing like hail. Pretty cool! Especially if you don't mind all the stuff being tracked into the house and the car.
Here is a really amazing video of the mountain erupting the night before, with a grand lightning display! I love the fierce nature of this great state we live in!

Keep us in your thoughts...because I don't think Miss Redoubt is through with us yet!
