Life in Alaska is never dull. Just as things were getting back to normal after the Christmas break, a local volcano decided to erupt on us. The good news is that Augustine is on an uninhabited island in the Cook Inlet. The only danger for Alaskans is the ash buildup that could affect peopleâ€™s cars and homes, and keep everybody inside for awhile. We were all expecting a lot of ash to land on Homer yesterday but the dark clouds that rolled in brought snowfall with a little bit of Ash, but not enough to do any damage. We are fortunate!
