Quiet and Naked

Last week I posted a webcam photo of the volcano Popocátepetl covered in snow after a heavy thunderstorm in Mexico City.  (At that high altitude, the precipitation falls as snow.)  We have not had any precipitation for several days, even though it's the rainy season, and the sun has been blazing.

I looked at the webcam this morning, and the mountain is a gray, bare cone of volcanic ash... not a bit of snow.

Fortunately, the volcano remains quiet with just a whisp of vapor coming from the crater.
