I got my Wish!

Well, I asked for Anchorage to get some ash & yesterday we did! Here's a picture of the ash cloud from the Kenai Peninsula. The Anchorage Airport has been closed since yesterday & the newspaper reports that it will re-open after crews get the ash cleaned-up ~ provided the volcano doesn't blow again.

I'm off to collect some ash. My nephews live in Minnesota so this might be something interesting for them to share with their classmates. I''ll be sending them some of the ash, newspaper articles, a book about volcanos & I'm going to experiment with some of it in my glass projects. It's a great learning opportunity for all of us!
Here's a picture of my car before I swept the ash off & into a plastic bag.
