"Hold on, honey, I just have to get the perfect shot of God's fury pouring out of the Earth."

As you may or may not have heard, one of Chile's angriest volcanos, Calbuco, woke up yesterday and has erupted twice since. The huge eruption has sent lava and ash miles into the air, forcing the evacuation of nearby towns. Reported NPR, "Local officials say people are very, very frightened. The immediate concern is the volcano's eruption could trigger snow melts and cause flooding." Here's a video demonstrating the size of the ash plume, taken from the nearest sizeable city, Puerto Montt, the "gateway to Patagonia":
