Volcano Erupts in New Zealand

Because it concerns so little of the world’s population, most of you probably won’t ever come to know about the nearby eruption that occurred last night here in New Zealand, but news of the blast was the first thing I woke up to this morning.  It’s been over one-hundred years since Mount Tongariro erupted and experts warn that last night’s explosion could be the beginning of a series that could last for years.  More than a three hour drive away, we could smell the sulfur in the air–a faintly humid rotten egg stench–and we’ve all been slightly bothered by a bit of ash in the air.
