    unless the winds change (which they no doubt will) Anchorage won't see ash.

    I just read about this and came on here to send you a message to make sure that you were ok. I guess you are. Must be pretty scary though!!

    why would it be scary? we're over 100 miles away, as the crow flies... not that close...

    no, Kenai is closer (where i grew up) but the wind has the ash going the opposite direction.

    When Mt. St. Helen's blew we got the tail end of the ash in NW Montana so the wind can carry ash a long distance. I'm guessing we were about 500 miles E.

    well she's been blowing off and on for the last week or so. It got really bad saturday and Anchorage got quite a bit of the stuff (more so on the south end of town... we were lucky and got a very light dusting at the house) the whole town smells like sulpher, yuck.
