Now there's ANOTHER ash cloud heading the UK's way.
As I said earlier, some reports (not just tabloid crap) are suggesting this could last fro months. Last time this volcano erupted the one next to it erupted within a couple of weeks too and that's even worse by all accounts!

It's become a real pain for many people considering a lot of folk went way fro the easter break, many people, talking hundreds of thousands across the world are affected by this. It's not as if flights can't leave the UK but no flights can enter either and considering that heathrow is one of the busiest airports in the world, do the math.

What I'm wondering is, how often does this sort of thing happen? Not just in Iceland but anywhere, you very rarely hear anything do you?

 
Mt St Helens here in Washington State was a big deal... but I don't remember the skies being shut down.
 
After 9/11 of course, we had no air traffic for a number of days... that was amazing.  It was completely quiet where we live... often the only man made noises come from the sky (and they're there almost all the time.)

The iceland volcano is all about proximity... the cloud spreading directly toward your continent.  

Is it effecting your weather?  Is it expected to?  I mean, is it gonna be overcast for months?

British Navy warships to rescue British citizens stranded
across Europe after a cloud of volcanic ash grounded most
European flights for a fifth day.

Hi Rose!

Some taxi drivers also take advantage; charge up to 1.000 / 3.000 euros (1350/4000 $) for carrying passengers back and forth from Europe {#Eek}
 

I know there are students trying to get back for testing, and people trying to get back to run their businesses.  It's gotta be really hurting some folks.
