An explosive thorn in our side

Mt. Redoubt, the volcano southwest of Anchorage is being a pain in the ass! Its been erupting several times over the last month or so, and yesterday the winds were just right to send ash over Anchorage. Check out our friends blogs (Andy's and Sam's) for photos of the falling ash and people and their masks.

Here is a time lapse video of the eruption!

The reason why its such a pain to us down here in Colorado, is because the ashfall has closed the Anchorage Airport. Our friend Kevin in Anchorage is supposed to fly down here on Tuesday to come to Panama with us Thursday. So if everyone could cross their fingers, toes, eyes, whatever, that would help a ton!
