The current volcanic eruption on the Big Island is in the same area where DH and I went to see the lava (but never got there). I rode in an ambulance through the area of Leilani Estates and Pahoa.  We had an excellent lunch in a Thai restaurant in Pahoa.

You can usually get out of the way of a lava flow as they tend to be slow, but when a lava fountain is throwing tons of hot molten lava hundreds of feet in the air you simply do not want to be there.

 

Then the sulfur dioxide gas - add that to the moisture in your nasal passages, bronchial tubes and lungs and you have instant sulfuric acid. Highly not recommended.

Can you imagine if you had broken your hip and then the volcano started erupting while you were there.

 

I hope it stops pretty soon, the last I heard it they have no idea how long this could last.

 

I thought it was bad just living near Mt. St. Helens.  I'd be nervous living in Hawaii that's for sure.

Oy, that would have been very bad.

While we are on the subject of hips, a Georgia man says his metal replacement hip saved his life when a sniper opened fire.

Am very glad you got home, broken hip or not. That's waaaaay too close for comfort.

 

We heard & felt it when Mt. St. Helen's blew. We didn't know what the heck it was until the news came on.

 

My hip X-ray....
