If you haven't heard about the Icelandic rascal, Eyjafjallajokull (I had to copy and paste that) then you must not have a tv or internet.
Flights across northern Europe have been grounded since Thursday. Flights can leave or come in. Thousands of folk are stranded all over the planet since last week was the last week of Easter holidays.
Here's the thing, I'm meant to be flying home to Stuart a week tomorrow. The volcano sent up a new plume of ash yesterday and they don't know when it'll stop. It could be months. The Eyjafjallajokull expert is actually stranded in Paris. Good one, eh?
Understandably people are very upset, they're stuck in foreign places with no money and only the airport to sleep in. A lot of people are angry that all airports are closed because surely they don't all have to be.
I'm a bit worried that the government will open airports because of pressure from the people and because it's hurting our economy more.
I do want to go home to Stuart but I don't want to risk getting on a plane that might not make it! At least the way things are right now I'll get home eventually. I hope they make the right decision.
Staying put is what I'd rather do even if it takes weeks. What a mess.
