Found these National Geog pictures from 1990. Thought they were current, but then read and they are from before.

hope my link works because that one picture is really fantastic.

12 hours later and just able to get back to the computer. No ashfall in Anchorage as yet. Apparently the main plume went due north, then east bypassing us so presuming it would have bypassed all of the Kenai Peninsula too (where Connie M. is) - pending a report. Light ashfall was reported in communities north and east of here. It depends on the overall elevation of the ash plume/s too - winds at varying elevations blowing different ways.

the updates on the AVO website still state continued seismic activity, but declining, with the 'code level' remaining at RED and the 'alert level' at WARNING. There were 5 'large explosions' overnight the last one at 4:31 am.

The Anchorage Int'l Airport shutdown was either brief or not at all as the website shows all flights as normal now, and AVO has now sent up an observation plane to check out the mountain visually too. Likely the diverting of inbound flights last night was just a precaution and a good precaution it is - as previous posts note you do not want to fly through volcanic ash.

edit: forgot to note - still a few teams on the Iditarod trail, guess they overnighted in the final checkpoints rather than pushing on during the night. the final award is the 'red lantern' for the last team to make it to Nome. a total of 15 teams have scratched of the 67 that started.

We escaped the ashfall, too. (It's such a mess to deal with!)

I think, everything comes from the earth is wonderfull and precious!
I live in Rome, in a river of cars who go every day at work, without the way to watch what in the wild planet happens.
So, trying not to stay too near, to Know is goig to shot a big Volcano, expecially if in Alaska, I love so much, is a good news for me, and I hope to visit these places as soon as possible to feel my earth like my passion for caravaning, near to me.
Thank you, Ciao from Italy!

It blew again at 7:41 PM AKDT, new ashfall advisory and mudflow. 60,000 feet.

Hope we hear from you locals soon. Gee, I haven't been to adn.com recently. Think I'll go see if there is anything there to read.

More ash is predicted to fall north of Anchorage, and also to the SW in the Bristol Bay region. We haven't been able to see the mountain ourselves, except for a nice shot from the AVO's Redoubt webcam.

Take advantage of the light if you can. Once the smoke clears there will be tons of particles left floating around very high that makes the most awesome sunsets imaginable. I would imagine places far east like Whitehorse will get the best shots... maybe Calgary.

some pretty interesting photos on the updates at the AVO site.

more eruptions yesterday morning (ash plume to 65,000 feet) and tonight (ash around 38,000 feet). ashfall spreading more widely - finally supposed to expect some here in Anchorage in a few hours. Couldn't avoid it forever. Connie did you get some ash yesterday there?

apparently the Anchorage airport was shut down for quite awhile Monday (at least a lot of flights cancelled)... it just didn't reflect on the website but all the people milling about the terminal on the nightly news was proof. bunches of flights cancelled yesterday and so far today too.

I'm expecting a FedEx package that came from Massachusetts - but it's stuck on the ground in California. Interestingly a package got through via USPS from Ohio yesterday...
"Neither rain nor hail nor sleet nor snow nor heat of day nor dark of night shall keep this carrier from the swift completion of his appointed rounds." nor volcanic ashfall??
it was a couple days late made still made it through.

well, NO false alarm today. There were several more big eruptions and the wind was finally just right to bring ash through Anchorage. I was out by the main post office at the airport when the first big ash cloud started to come through at 5:30 pm or so and saw what was probably the last plane to take off just before the cloud really hit (airport is now shut down until further notice).

I only wish I had had a video camera with me to show what it looked like. As the ash cloud came from southwest to northeast it blotted out the view of everything in the distance - blue sky turned grey. The mountains to the east of town (Chugach range) were in sight then slowly gone from view as the cloud got bigger.

Total ashfall here in Anchorage so far is probably still considered 'trace' amounts but it looked more amazing while it was airborne - we do still have some ash falling but not much. The attached picture was taken about 7:30 pm in my front yard. You can still see the snow through it as opposed to other areas in the region where the ashfall was greater and the ground is just all grey.

To top it off we now have a high wind advisory (75+ mph) overnight which will just blow the ash all about. Hopefully we'll get some snow or rain to keep the ash/dust down as it was really dry today.

Connie how is it down there?
