For any of my regular readers, you might be interested in this...the volcano has blown again, and we are engulfed in complete darkness at one oclock in the afternoon.
UPDATE: Updates from various volcanism blogs seem to indicated that the event was a collapse of one the the volcano domes. The skies have lightened and the ash fall has decreased considerably (almost 2 pm). It is still overcast with a bit of ash swirling in the winds which seem to keep changing direction. Maybe we've dodged the bullet.
4 PM- There is no new significant ash fall which is very good. The temperature has plummeted and is now about 45 F with forecast of colder temps tonight and rain. Futa is quiet, garbage collection went on as usual, the workers wearing masks and goggles. I haven't been out yet, but will go later to get some supplies.
