well isn’t this another fine mess Iceland has got us in to. My rights are being violated. I demand..

Listening to the radio report, and there is a chance this might continue to next week. Nooooooooo!  It can’t do that.  Oh yeah? Who are you? I’m a volcano. I can do whatever I want.  Why? Were you planning a flight next week?  Ah, hahahahahahaha.

[Drew: This is the first time in 200 years that the volcano has erupted through the Eyjafjallajokull glacier. Free caulk to the first person who can actually pronounce “Eyjafjallajokull”. Volcanologists are worried that a nearby sister volcano may also go off, as usually happens.

A bigger worry is Katla, which in the past has erupted in tandem with Eyjafjallajokull. The last major eruption took place in 1918, and volcanologists say a new blast is overdue.

‘So far there have been no signs of the reawakening of the Katla volcano, but a lot of things can still happen, so we are monitoring it quite closely,’ Einarsson said.

UPDATE: Flight ban extended until Friday, maybe longer!

Air traffic control service (Nats) said its next review would be at 0230 BST but the situation was “not improving”.

Medication

The volcano’s eruption is intensifying, and the wind direction is expected to continue bringing clouds of ash into UK and European airspace for some time to come - safety group Eurocontrol said the problem could persist for 48 hours.

...

The UK’s airspace restriction was the worst in living memory, a spokesman said.

...

Volcanic ash is expected to reach ground level over the UK, starting in Scotland on Thursday evening before moving south over the course of the night.

Health Protection Scotland said those with existing respiratory conditions such as chronic bronchitis, emphysema and asthma should ensure they have any inhalers or other medications with them.

I’d say get a dust mask or a respirator ASAP. Stay indoors and hope it rains.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
