Beware of the Ash Clouds

Amazing...absolutely amazing. It's been a long time (if ever) that an volcanic ash cloud has caused so much disruption. Thousands of flights have been cancelled across Europe and between here and there. Here's a link to a story at Accuweather that shows the ash will be around for awhile.

I don't know if it is enough ash or the right chemical mixture to have an impact on temperatures. We'll look into that on a later posting. Let's hope for more global cooling. Nothing pleases me more than for Jack Frost to be nipping at Al Gore's butt.

I saw that on the news tonight and it was pretty amazing! I think I heard that over 1000 flights were canceled at Heathrow, alone, today. Pretty incredible.

From what I heard ash is death to an airplane. It also said the ash is due to stay over that part of Western Europe for a number of days to come.

Wow! Glad I'm not traveling to or from that area!!
