Flights grounded

Travellers due to head for the airport today and tomorrow must be frustrated. All non-emergency flights have been cancelled due to ash cloud over our airspace. For once in this modern society, the only way for an average person in Ireland to leave this island is by ferry. Almost reminiscent of centuries passed.

This is probably the kind of time we wish we’re connected by road or by rail to mainland Europe. UK has its saving grace in the form of the Channel Tunnel. Or as my friends call it, the Chunnel.

I am no meteorologist but is the volcanic ash from Iceland also causing part of the chill today?

Ps: does that mean any tourists who want to go out to Iceland right now to witness the eruptions (amazing isn’t it, how such a phenomenon is drawing in all the visitors to Iceland at the moment) or those already there are essentially also stuck in Iceland with no way in nor out either?
