On one hand, that's pretty cool. On the other hand, that's farking terrifying.

I think I'd move somewhere else.

Hell, I want to go back there!

For the most part, Mt. Etna just belches smoke and ash and doesn't do a whole lot of destruction/damage to the local villages. Catania (the main city on the east coast of the island) gets dusted a whole lot though.

Pumice, is that? I think I'd rather have that than the fine powdery ash. I'd still be really uneasy living there anyway. I just know the town would get buried without warning, like Pompeii, and then a couple thousand years from now some museum would be displaying the plaster cast of me sitting on the crapper or something.

Those are great to add to the grill for heat retention and indirect cooking.  I'd be bagging that ish up and selling it.

Minus the volcano spewing gravel everywhere, the one thing I noticed was that was a beautiful town. It looked like a great place to live.

Perfect location to open a paint and body shop.  That crap looks like it scratches the shiat out of a car's finish.

I lived in Alaska back in the 80's and one of the volcano's off the coast erupted and spewed ash skyward for about a month. The ash fell like grey snow and piled up everywhere, it was such a fine powder that it was getting into everything, clogging air filters and stuff. The poor people that tried to use a broom to sweep it off the cars were basically just taking a fine grained sandpaper to the surface, and the poor people that tried to use a water hose pretty much just turned it into a quick setting mortar. It's really a no win situation, because even if you just left it alone and tried to have the wind blow it off as you drove around it'd scratch the crap out of your finish, and that was just the ash. I can't imagine what these guys are having to put up with.

But probably a good place to set up a car painting business.

Thanks, Earth.  This is why we can't have nice things.

I'll re-take the 98 ice storm over that, thank you very much.

/Only lacked electricity a few days, during which I lived at my sister's place where they have a wood furnace. We hat sea food and steak everyday because it might have spoiled otherwise.

What a bunch of cry babies. When I was your age I had to walk to school barefoot over molten lava while dodging volcanic rocks in a mine field. You kids don't know how easy you have it these days.

It's a Sicilian message.

It means Luca Brazi sleeps with the Flintstones.
