Ben vs. the Volcano

Causing chaos across Europe!

So this little guy has me grounded for Day 3 with Day 4 looking very probable.  If you haven’t heard about it yet, a volcano named Eyjafjallajokull (ay-yah-FYAH’-plah-yer-kuh-duhl) has popped under a glacier in Iceland and is spewing ash all over Europe.  It’s spewing nasty stuff into the air that decidedly disagrees with airlines jet engines… as well as causing you to need to wash your car.

If you look up, not at the sun of course, you won’t see a single jet stream in any direction.  Peope living in the flightpath of airports all over the UK are having “No Fly Day Party-Days” and I’m sporting a “Ben vs the Volcano 2” t-shirt.  Anyone remember “Joe vs. the Volcano”?  Good movie!!!

Get ready to send supplies if this keeps up much longer and I’ll keep posting as news progresses.  Now… can I get someone to view my blog so I’m not writing to myself :)?!

UPDATE: No flights out of Heathrow before 0700 GMT Sunday!
