Volcano eruption - Poof! at 9:24 am AND this morning's presents!

Mt. Redoubt went POOF! at 9:24am this morning with a projected height of 64,000 feet.....that's allot! Now to wait and see if it was a big ash producing event or not. High altitude predictions are that is should be in the air at our place 2 hours after the event. We shall see. Just for grins tho, I washed off the hood of my truck that sits outside to check for ash dust later. Since it was a quick burst relatively speaking, there's probably not allot of ash that's gone into the airstream, but then again at this time they don't know.

I also had presents waiting for me this morning! Woohoo! Our first twins born here this year out of my half Suffolk/ half Shetland ewe. Twin boys but that's ok, I have 3 of her daughters here and I don't need any more! YAY! One is black the other will be gray...and what a great momma she is too!

Pictures coming when the air is clear........

No, I think you'd win Garrett...flooding is horrible. I can live with earthquakes and volcanoes. Besides, if we do get a decent ashfall at all, it can double the hay crop. I still have my fingers crossed for you, I remember 10 years ago when it flooded there and they were saying it was the '100 year flood' - obviously they were off by ten years, weren't they..... :-(

Oh, and our volancoe just blew up at around 8:30am AGAIN this morning....active little bugger.....
