We're Still Here...

We're still here and not covered with ash, so it's a good day. Things are still active, though. The Alaska Volcano Observatory is fixing a web cam about 5 miles from the Redoubt summit crater today, so they can monitor the activity. Until that is up and running, they have redirected the web cam near Mt. Spurr toward Redoubt. If you are interested, here is the link to that web cam. http://www.avo.alaska.edu/webcam/webcam.php?cam=Redoubt%20-%20CI Enjoy. (Unless it erupts, and then you can run screaming into the street. No, wait. That would be me.)

So what do you do if it erupts?? There is always something, isn't it?? We are currently awaiting up to 14 inches of snow. Another snow day....I can't believe it.

They have a safety list, just like what we had for hurricanes. You need to have food and bottled water stocked up. You stay inside and put damp towels around doors and windows to block ash from coming in. Block vents. Don't run engines - ash ruins motors quickly! Basically, you bring in or cover everything you can and stay inside until it all settles. Then you clean it up. I hope you don't get snowed in. Stay warm!
