Check out spectacular geologic images from Steph at this link: http://wordwomanpartialellipsisofthesun.blogspot.com/2017/03/smoking-smoke-rings-mount-etna-sicily.html I especially appreciate the Mount Etna photos because I visited there when the Smith College Alumnae Chorus toured Sicily. Be sure to check out the bonus images in the first comment from Steph, aka Word Woman. Enjoy!
Mount Saint Helens
Re-blogging this post: http://wordwomanpartialellipsisofthesun.blogspot.com/2016/05/may-18-1980-where-were-you-when-mt-st.html from blogger friend Steph on the anniversary of the eruption of Mount Saint Helens in the western United States. Great explanations and photos to remind us of the incredible power of geology. Check it out!
checking stats at 3:30 AM
Because I was up and posting, I checked my stats and found out that the only person to visit my blog so far today was in Australia and reached this post because they searched for “raining on volcano.”
This is slightly mind-boggling to me. Someone on the other hemisphere from me – times two – visited my blog due to the power of a search engine.
I don’t know if s/he read my post. They may have been looking for science, rather than travelogue/musings. Just the concept of global connection is enough to make me ponder.
Little me and mystery person half a world away brought together for at least a moment.
