|This photograph's from last night...looks like a giant rising up as lava shoots up into the sky|
It seemed like a peaceful and quiet weekend...but wait 'the old lady' has woken up!
Mt. Etna is erupting again and is spewing ash and lava, making a wonderful show at night.
|Snow and lava|
Not to worry I'm at least two hours away by car (We're closer to Stromboli, a smaller volcano which is out at sea) but I have had the opportunity to see the lava flow at night and it's quite beautiful and scary at the same time. Etna erupts nearly every year and people who live near or on it(!) are used to the earth tremors and ash.
Photographs are from local news site but unfortuately I don't know who took them.
