I saw the latest fireworks on Sky news this morning,
It looked bigger than the one the other day-Lucie was right with her vibes I think.

Thank goodness the news reported that there was no damage to property and no casualties.
Otherwise I would have been worrying about Silo and Lucie all day like last week.

What they fail to understand is there was tons of property damage - if you can count plants and terrain as 'property'!

We're still 'cleaning up' and I'll tell you - I've lost tons a crops.


But, that's life on the island!

More to come BRB! THANKS FOR THE POST!!!

Ok first and foremost...

Raw Video: Sicily's Mount Etna erupts again

So don’t forget folks, it might not be as exciting as Yahoo (har har) but you heard, and saw it first here, on ATS!!!

See Yahoo video here

Thirteen hours ago this was released. (And don't forget, to see that video you have to watch commercials... And I don't see ANY reference giving credit to the person who filmed the video. Fail Yahoo!

So don’t forget folks, it might not be as exciting as Yahoo (har har) but you heard, and saw it first here, on ATS!!!

This is what you wont see on Yahoo...

Men all over town are risking their lives to clean the 'rain-ah' (again, phonetic spelling for the 'grit and ash and rock' that falls from Etna) from the roofs of their homes.

This man has been doing it all his life, sure, but he's still almost 80.

It was all I could do to take the picture - I just can't watch them do it! My HEART is in my throat every second.

(This is the home a ways below mine)...






peace

Oh wow....I see what you mean! That's pretty high up!
For some reason, the link to the video didn't work for me...

Thank you for keeping an eye out Kat.

Etna's been quiet all day and I've the feeling we've seen all we're going to, see for a while. It's a 'gut' thing. I guess we'll have to see if my gut and my puppies are the same.

Oh, Try again video should be working now.

Until next time!

peace

And to think I worry if my hubby go's on the roof with the correct ladders. I would be terrified. Thanks for giving us a little peep into your world.

This might interest you all, for the English speakers there are some nice pictures.
During the month of July 2011, both Etna and Stromboli have shown elevated levels of eruptive activity.

"mi scusi"

when in Rome?,,,a question
Seems like a un-nessesary risk?,,,Is it because of the "weight" of the ash,,,,that he must clean off the roof?

and how are the grapes doing?

"grazie caro/a per essere stato/a così carino/a… abbracci" ?????

hope i got it right.

Per your question, the weight is unreal. Also, it washes off into the water system through the gutters and we're dependent on the water cisterns. I also think it's a 'guy thing' - modern masculinity test. Considering no matter when the stuff falls onto the roof it seems like all the guys in the neighborhood - ahem! I mean all the MEN in the neighborhood seem to be up on their roofs at the same time!

Grazie, i vostri complimenti sono molto gentili! (Thanks, nice compliments)!

peace

Its because you give us the reason to "So che tu puoi mettere un po' di fiato nel gruppo"
that WE still are able.

Thank you BobAtHome


Update on Etna. Local news says there's more to come. Lots more 'filling' She needs to 'get rid of'. She's been putting out some ash today but not much. Fingers crossed the news reports are wrong. All this ash/grit is just painful!

Until Next Time...

peace

That sounds horrid-that ash is not good for anyone.
I hope you get some rain soon to damp it into the ground.
Poor Lucie is nearer to the ground as well-check her ears and nose don't get ash build up.
You may get away with damp cotton wool to clean out her ears,but I doubt that would work with her nose.
Maybe just give her a wipe if you notice any ash on the poor pup.

And grab some dust masks for yourself while you are at it,if they are not sold out.
Hope it all settles down soon for you two!

Good grief StealthyKat-
How brave is Silo/Gracie?
Living atop a boiling volcano...that takes some steel.

I must admit,I would probably have run to a safe distance by now.
Bug out bag/ATS survival forum knowledge on board.

I hope thats what Silo and Lucie do if it gets bad.
Or before it gets bad,preferably.

Yeah, she is one tough chick! When it was erupting the other day, I was freaking and checking in on her every chance I got and she was out on the porch with Luci filming things calm cool and collected!
