Etna has been an uncharacteristically nervous lady
(see blog : http://www.hotelcorsaro.it from a hotel that keeps tabs on her),
and not breathing in her usual way (1).

After flowing and stopping suddenly last July, then shaking a bit, then
taking a rest in August (while I visited her), then sputtering a bit
last weekend, she is now relaxing into her more typical lava flow. The
webcam view of Etna is beautiful at night now:
