Nature's Fury

(it really didn't look like this, this is from Mt. Redoubt's 1989 eruption event)

Mt. Redoubt, one of our nearby volcanoes, erupted multiple times this week. The ash from the first couple of eruptions didn't come Anchorage's way, however that changed on Saturday when the winds shifted and we received a little bit of ash. We were out running errands when the ash cloud arrived in town. What had been a sunny day quickly turned into a hazy day. We headed home and spent the rest of the day indoors.

Below is a time lapse movie that captured one of Redoubt's Friday morning eruptions
