    Well I did just watch the NOS journal(dutch)(use google my friend) But when I did say the satalitemap(in the weather announcement, am I right?) And I did saw nearly whole west europe was Buried in ashes from the Volcano. I heard that all plane flights were canceled! Wow it is now nearly impossible to reach the U.S.! They say the plane flights will be canceled for 2 F^^king days! Check the source for a vid. about this!

    "Volcano," goddamnit. "Volcano." Not "vulcan." Spock didn't blow up.

    I'm in North East Scotland and we have patchy clouds which I assume are actually ash they just look like slightly grey clouds to me. Apparently there was some ash-fall in Ayr which is nasty stuff expecially if it gets wet (I would like to have some ash-fall to see what its like)

    The reason it can't be seen is 'cos it is too high up. It is a hazard to planes though, as they would suck it up, and die...

    Hmm I heard it would be visible by tomorrow morning in the whole of the UK. Loads of people were moaning about not going on holiday because of the planes being grounded. personally I would rather stay on the ground than crash into the side of a mountain or something because of the ash.

    There's an animated map on the MET office website showing where it's been today. On the radio news this afternoon they said it won't look like solid cloud cover from the ground but it would tint the sky a little, mostly noticeable around sunset. Then again, this is the same station who's top news story of the day was about a local woman who'd miss her brother's wedding in Italy so I'm not sure how much I'd trust their judgement :S
