Looking at the Sky on Friday

This was taken before I left the US military (Navy) base in my home country. This was the smoke coming out of Mount Pinatubo.

Volcano EruptingA warning saying, a sand storm/mud rain is coming. Just look at the trees, the sand/mud was very heavy and the trees can't take it.

Volcano Erupting2Another change of scenery from the snow storm beating the NorthEast USA. Instead of plowing snow, they plowed mud and sand.

Volcano Eruption DestructionThis one used to be the movie theater on post. The used to be very shady tree are gone. However, I know they are back by now. That was 19 years ago, wow, that was ages

Haunting photos, it is always amazing to me the devastation nature causes and it's ability to bounce back from that devastation. ~ Calico Contemplations

The smoke coming out of Mount Pinatubo is amazing! I have seen anything like it before.

@ Calico, yes I agree, as long as the weather stop misbehaving they sure come back.

@ Stine, the mountain/volcano is very high and the smoke can be seen afar.

That is a dramatic shot of the smoke coming out of Mount Pinatubo. Nature can be violent!

Mudslides caused all that damage? Wow

@ Patti, actually that wasn't mudslides. It was the mixture of ashes/sand and rain coming from the sky. Actually the Naval Base was only less than 30 miles from it. However, there are other mountains between the two places.

Clark Air Base was about 13 miles(also USA military base)and wasn't so lucky. The mudslides ran through them.

Amazing. Just amazing. I remember when Mt. Saint Helens blew its top in 1980. I wasn't close enough to be in any danger, but it did a lot of damage. Triggered many mud slides and knocked trees over for miles.

Of course, the job is one of the most demanding in the humanities (any mother care to disagree?), and I often work 14 hours a day (24 is more like it). But the job is more challenging than most run-of-the-mill careers, and the rewards are more of a satisfaction than just money."
