Thanks to this thread at Hillary’s Village which began on 01.29.09, it’s been an exciting week following the action through knowledgable posters, photos, graphs and musings (“if a watched pot never boils, you guys are doing Alaska a great favor!”) about one of Mother Earth’s most intriquing events. Here’s a peek at Mt. Redoubt’s last eruption, circa April 1990:

….and the obligatory local news PANIC and Home Depot product placement via the AP:
Geologists say Alaska’s Mount Redoubt could erupt within days, the first time in 20 years. Nearby residents are preparing for a possible ash storm.(Jan. 29)
Whether you check in at Hillary’s Village, which I do, they ‘splain to Lucy better, or book mark the AVO link, keep the people of Alaska in your thoughts.
