We were hard at work yesterday when Pavlov Volcano blew up just a few miles away. Volcanic ash made it to more than 20,000 foot. I can still see ash spewing into the sky looking out my window right now. Fortunately the winds have worked in our favor so far, so the ash has not been an issue for the machinery.
Also, my brother and his family are home from the Philippines for a few months and he was able to make it down to Cold Bay last night and fly around Unimak Island with me today. The map shows where we were located. Looks like a few days of wind and rain are in the forecast but we can’t complain, it’s been beautiful.
