Blowing Steam


I saw my home town on CNN! Turns out the local volcano, Mt. Augustine, is going through a series of erruptions. The volcano is an island in Kachemak Bay and I used to be able to see it from my bedroom window - it was quite a view.

The volcano last errupted 20 years ago. I remember because we had horses and I had to keep emptying their water trough because so much ash fell.

Exciting! Or is it scary?

I took lots of pictures with my "Kodak Disk" camera from McNeil Canyon of ash clouds rolling in over the bay. The clouds were brown to gray and darkened the sky for hours. My brother and I swept up a few gallon jugs of ash from the porch(thinking that we could be rich over the sale of it). Funny, it turns out that a LOT of people collected it-Wild Berry Products still sells it in tiny little vials (and probably have enough back-stock for a duration). I just remember the immensity of the clouds that day, and seeing ash build up like snow.
