What the What? Snow-Covered Lava Flows in Russia

You know what they say about snow-covered lava. If that happens, it won’t be long before men will be marrying dogs and… No wait, that’s what morons say about gay marriage. I don’t think anybody talks about snow-covered lava. In case you wondered, I am in fact sponsored by snow-covered lava, which promises not to destroy my house if I say it a few more times.


Despite erupting back on November 27, 2012, the volcano Tolbachik, one out of many active volcanoes on the Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia, is still showing activity. An initial trek of lava flowed around twelve miles, spewing through a line of fissures on the southern side of the volcano. After enough time, some of the lava began to cool, which allowed some snow cover to accumulate onto the still flowing lava.
