Ashes again? I don't mean to sound callous, but nature sure has a way of putting us all in our place, doesn't she?
Hi Glenn,Yup, ashes again--and I don't think you sound "callous" at all. 'Tis a fact. This evening, after work and a couple of beers, I plan to write just a little about how Shinmoe Dake has become a fact of life here. (In Miyazaki City it's not really much more than a minor inconvenience with some photo ops--for me, anyway...)
Glad you and the family are safe and sound.
Thanks, Glenn. And just so you know, even if the volcano really blew it's top--lava flows and all that (which is not considered likely), there would be little or no immediate danger where we are. I think. I hope!;-)
Well, just in case, take it from a semi-pro: when evacuating, take more than three-days' worth of clothes. Every Katrina-evacuee that I know left here with only that. Why bother with more? We all knew we'd be back home in just a couple of days.
