Uh-Oh!

You know that little volcano that K. has alluded to on his blog

The one pictured here:

Well--the view out side my window at sunset tonight showed a plume a bit bigger than that! Oh. My. Goodness!!!!!

Needless to say; I'm a bit anxious...

I'm wondering how well two dogs, (one 64lbs. one 7 lbs.) a cat, a bird; along with a large kennel AND a heavy-duty bird cage will fit into an older (late 1990's) Jeep Cherokee. Is there even a possiblity of luggage?

Probably not.

Just a bit of an update. We aren't in the path of lava flow as there is ocean beetween that gurgling mass of rock. I'm more concerned with ash. The volcano is about 90 miles as the crow flies and the watch level has been raised to ORANGE. OOO-ooo!

You can keep up with Mt. Redoubt here.

We have volcanoes here too. If it's any comfort, it's supposed to be good for them to let of steam/pressure slowly, because it can keep it from building up to more dangerous levels.

Hmmm.

How close are you to the mountain? What are the prediction for eruption?

Lisa said...

Here's hoping it's just a volcano burp.

Craigslist the cat and the bird.

Then come on over. Charlie needs a playmate and I need a mommy.

and just think a couple of weeks ago we heard about volcano monitoring as "pork"

Hope you stay safe

Yikes! I'm feelin' like a pansy-ass for worrying about a few stinkin' wildfires. Stay safe and drive fast if you have to.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope you remain safe, a volcano does appear a bit more threatening than a bushfire.

Q said...

Oh my goodness!
I did not know you were so close.
I will be keeping a watch.
I also will be sending safety thoughts your way...
WOW...
I like the idea of going to NM!
Always something!
Happy Spring!
