Eyjafjallajökull

Haven’t really been up to much, but thought I should attempt to write a blog post.

I have been following the news on the Icelandic volcano. You can watch the smoke billowing out on this website: http://eldgos.mila.is/eyjafjallajokull-fra-valahnjuk/

Just as we all thought the smoke stopped, Eyjafjallajökull decides to puff out some more ash! Apparently the last time she erupted, the smoke kept puffing out for nearly two years! Also, the past three times this volcano erupted, it was soon followed by Katla who is a whole other story!

Last time Katla erupted it caused a change in temperature. I guess if this volcano also spouts its top off, then we can say goodbye to air travel for a while.

If you fancy a read, this is what happens when planes fly into volcanic ash: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Airways_Flight_9

Now i'm off to wash the ash of the car :)

There was one from Vancouver which had been due to land at heathrow. It circled the Isle of Man for ages.

It's all a conspiracy I tell yah, all a conspiracy!
It's underground nicotine addicted pixies doing it! The government don't want us to know because they don't want world panic coz they don't know what the pixies will do next.
It's true!!!
