Nope, when you hit reply to your own post instead of edit, you lose the quote. But there is quote inside of both.
You may have hit reply to his post instead hitting edit to your post, but that is a different thing, and anyhow, we believe you are getting older... :razz:

<snip>
Elford Lewis, a 56-year-old farmer who evacuated his home on Sunday morning, said the ongoing eruption is worse than the last big one in 1979.

"This one is more serious," said Lewis, who witnessed the big eruption decades ago.

Experts called it a "huge explosion" that generated pyroclastic flows down the volcano's south and southwest flanks.

"It's destroying everything in its path," Erouscilla Joseph, director of the University of the West Indies' Seismic Research Center, told The Associated Press. "Anybody who would have not heeded the evacuation, they need to get out immediately."
<snip>
Richard Robertson, with the seismic research center, told local station NBC Radio that the volcano's old and new dome have been destroyed and that a new crater has been created. He said that the pyroclastic flows would have razed everything in their way.

"Anything that was there, man, animal, anything...they are gone," he said. "And it's a terrible thing to say it."

Joseph said the latest explosion is equivalent to the one that occurred in 1902 and killed some 1,600. The volcano last erupted in 1979. Ash from the ongoing explosions has fallen on Barbados and other nearby islands.[/quote]

Yeah. Bloody annoying...

Our house has flat roofs and many inaccessible ledges. Spent a good part of yesterday sweeping, shop-vacuuming, and power-washing the very fine dust. Only to have to do it all over again today...

I'm almost expecting locusts next...

I hope you're keeping that dust out of your lungs... :ick:

Yeah... Happen to have a good supply of N95 masks in inventory... :smile:

The biggest issue at the moment is no "mains" water. Have backup reserves, of course, but hauling water up two flights of stairs is not my idea of fun... :sad:

Of course, the weight of a [i]lot[/i] of dust and ash would collapse the roof.

But geez, using up water to clean the roof, all I can say is, I hope the volcano quiets down and you get some rain soon. [Google Google] Hmm, it seems you're most of the way through the dry season...[quote]I'm almost expecting locusts next...[/QUOTE]Don't worry. The frogs will eat them.

Locusts make good human food too.

I speak from experience.

Does anyone know yet how long this eruption is likely to last?
Should we be thinking in days or months?

Uncwilly 2021-04-14 21:54

Likely months.
