    It's been burping steam for almost 2 months now! I have a great view of it from work. If it goes I'll let you know.

    LOL! They downgraded it to yellow on 3/10... then it belched some ash (just a little) so they upped it to orange again. Then a few days later they downgraded it again, only to have a bunch of little shallow earthquakes start up... it's orange again, and they're watching 24/7. I just wish it would go up in ash and get it over with. [​IMG]
    But Hubby's right... he's been keeping an eye on it from work. He's right across the inlet from it. [​IMG]
