Silver Lining

Tags:

You can watch the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull erupting here. The last eruption lasted two years. Yikes. All flights in and out of London’s airports have been cancelled because of the ash cloud, and after a few hours without the drone of aeroplane turbines the absence has become pleasantly discernible. I’ve got so used to a plane flying overhead every ten minutes or so that now I notice there are none.

    Air traffic in and out of Norway has shut down and won’t open again for at least several weeks, according to the Norwegian newspapers.

    Oooh! Now we can smell the sulphur in our garden in Norway. It came from Iceland med stor fart.
