Skywatch Extra

This week has been quite historic for the skies above the UK in that ALL aircraft has been grounded except for emergencies due to a huge volcanic ash cloud gatecrashing our airspace from  Eyjafjallajokull in Iceland.

This is my current view of the sky which to be honest make it hard to believe there is an ash cloud up there.

and these are some internet piccies I found of the ash cloud and the eruption. Obviously none are mine but they weren't copyrighted so I thought it would be OK to share.

We are told that it isn't dangerous to go out which is just as well now that I have a hole in my bedroom ceiling and can see the sky through the cracks in the slates not to mention the hole the builders have cut for the window which is sheeted over.

Progress piccies on that tomorrow.

It is an amazing photo but it does also bring a lot of destruction and delays to many flights in Europe. Hope the dark ashes in the clouds will be clear soon. Happy weekend!

Your current view of the sky over London looks beautiful.

Let's hope it stays that way.

It's nice and clear where we are too; but DD did want her dad to get her an old wartime gas mask we have out of the loft!

I hadn't thought the fumes and ash could be a health hazard! That volcano is wreaking havoc all over Britain!!
