Vulcanic ashes from Mount Sinabung in Medan

When I woke up this morning, I saw something stranges has happened since last night. I opened the window and I saw a quite thick layer of dusts on my neighbour's roof (I was on my house's second floor). I went outside the my house to find out what's happened right away. In my front yard, I found the same kind of dusts also covering all my plants including my car. Unfortunately, my car is WHITE!  It's been raining all night long and  I must parked my car outside (unfortunately again) since my husband is out of town and he parked his car inside. So his car is safe and mine is a mess *sigh

I looked closer to the dusts. Soft grey with soft texture just like ashes from cigarette. And its all over the place. And then I found out that it was actually volcanic ashes from Mount Sinabung which has been frequently errupted (minor erruptions) these couple of weeks.
Mount Sinabung is located in Karo Regency, North Sumatra, Indonesia which is about 3 hours from our place, Medan, which actually is far enough. Yet the wind apprently succeed to bring the ashes all way down to Medan.

Almost every car we found on the street covered in ashes as well and it's (as I said before) strange.....
Like this car, I found when parking in front of a restaurant

Mount Sinabung is actually beautiful especially on a clear day. Two places near it are familiar with tourists, Brastagi and Kabanjahe. Two beautiful places with the pleasant mountain air. I am sure that those places will look quite different right now, covered in vulcanic ashes which I'm sure will be thicker than we have here. I hope Mount Sinabung will be just fine and one day we will be able to see it again.
