    Taking advantage of the high pressure system stuck over Chile now, here are some views of the volcanoes going south with the increasing base.

    This is what a Puelche looks like


    When the normal westerlies become easterlies, cold in winter, warm in summer.

    So the dry Puelche is battling the moist Nor'wester in the Araucanía, keeping the big precipitation at bay for the most part. It is an unusual situation near lake level, with the easterly blowing and showers together. Got the old timers taking notice.

    All indicators (including the cold rain now) indicate that something will fall in the next 3-4 days, so I am heading for the weekend to the epicenter of the collision, Las Mellizas (Cordillera de Las Raíces), or thereabouts. Rubber boots off and ski boots on!

    The forecast for the nearby border passes is

    The verdict was a stalemate. “Ni fu ni fa”. Which was fine, as the vis was reasonable, and the snow soft.

    And as it turned out, Arenales was the destination. A Pehuenche ceremonial construction.

    V Villarrica has entered into a new phase of activity. According to http://sitiohistorico.sernageomin.cl/volcan.php?iId=22, some buzzwords extracted by me:

    "Se espera la ocurrencia de explosiones de mayor energía y volumen, en las cuales fragmentos balísticos podrían
    acumularse en los alrededores del cráter de manera inestable y generar avalanchas mixtas de detritos
    volcánicos, hielo y nieve, las que podrían desencadenar lahares de bajo a moderado volumen encauzados por los
    ríos y/o quebradas de las cuencas que drenan el volcán (ver mapa adjunto"

    Have fun translating that, but keep and eye out for "ballistic fragments" and "mixed avalanches of volcanic detritus, ice and snow". Still they cover their arse by saying "this could evolve into a major eruption or relaxation of the volcanic system". The latest report raised the alert to orange (one below red which is "apretar cachetes", or simply, "run").

    Given the continuing Puelche, which somehow was blowing down from the volcano together with cold rain this morning (this is weird, believe me), the plume spreads northwest this time, towards us (yikes! but the locals pay no notice, so I am tranquilein John Wayne).

    The snow falling now should cover the ash-snow from the last bout of spewing.
