60% of air traffic has been resumed but they're saying it may still take a couple weeks to get everyone to their destinations.

Why does the volcano make lightning?
 
I wondered about that myself.  From Smithsonian.com :

...The scientists now believe that volcanoes can produce two kinds of lightning during an eruption. The first type, which has been understood for some time, occurs in the volcano's smoke plume a few minutes after the eruption ends. In this case, highly energized hot air and gases clash with the cool atmosphere, creating the sort of "organized," branched lightning found in a thunderstorm, says Thomas.

The second kind of lightning, which the authors called "a newly identified explosive phase," came as a surprise, says Thomas. As magma, ash and rocks spewed from Augustine carrying great electrical charge, they created continuous, chaotic sparks near the mouth of the volcano.

"There's some mechanism in there that's making it come out charged," says Thomas, who hopes the new observations will lead to a better understanding of both kinds of volcanic lightning.

Not all volcanic eruptions produce lightning, says McNutt, but the new equipment might be used to track the ones that do-particularly those in remote regions.

A guy living in the shadow of Chaiten volcano (which is still erupting btw, nearly two years later without a break) said raw onion was the only thing they found that relieved the congestion/abrasion/pain up the nose from volcanic ash. Main thing is keeping the damn stuff out of the house. In Iceland they tape up their windows. Might be a bit excessive as it is bound to clear up in a day or two if it hasn't already. Good luck!

It's what us Brits say when a man has a heavy cold, sort of mickey take. When women have a cold they say they have a cold, when men have a cold they say they have flu, hence manflu.

I've been thinking about what would happen if this ash cloud was over North America.  At least Europe has a decent rail system and though it is really crowded right now at least there is an alternative to get around.

If this happened in the US we'd be SOL.  Travel of any distance in this country is primarily by air.  We essentially have no passenger rail system. 

Guess Greyhound would get very busy.

 
Road trips would increase.

hi! 

I hope market economies are as flexible and resilient as we think they are. Times like this make me wonder though how dependent we have become on a few key supplies to keep the whole thing going. This was really a minor event. As an eruption it is interesting but it is also the kind of thing you can expect to happen somewhere in the world two to three times every decade. What's going to happen if we got struck with a truly large eruption?

I just got an email from aer lingus for a special 100 discount - I checked the fare and it was 1300 - exactly 100 more than the typical  I can get through the usual internet agents. Last year the same flight was 500. I wonder how much the air fares will go up now because of the money they're losing.
