In the Argentine ski resort of Bariloche, that white stuff falling from the sky this winter isn't snow

It's ash from the erupting Puyehue volcano, 60 miles to the West in Chile. Here's a shot of the streets of Bariloche last night....

..and here's more in English from Reuters. 

UPDATE: Excellent photoshow of Bariloche and surroundings at La Nacion today, right here.
