The Things I See

In April I posted about a big storm we had which brought volcanic ash all the way from Chile and dumped it on us here in Asuncion. The storm had such heavy winds it knocked out my internet tower.



A friend of mine across town was able to capture the storm in this photo.


You must remember it was midday!




Another friend took this photo of their pool after the ash had been dumped in it.
The pool went from clear to black in a matter of minutes.

This is amazing... acts of God come often with no warning and with unknown effects.

Man, that was some storm! I'm glad your friends got out of the pool in time! I'm glad I didn't have to clean it!

Oh my goodness! I wouldn't want to swim in that... That is insane that a cloud can carry all that ash. Wow.

That cloud definitely demanded some attention. Amazing what it did to the water in the pool.

That looks like a very bad storm not counting the ash.

Sometimes after a bad storm here the smell of fish gets so strong it is almost like they are laying in the yard. Have never found one though. connie

Wow, from that far away, i wonder what it would be like if you get caught out in the open when all that ash hits.
