Wheeee, Friday!!

Since I have nothing to talk about, really, have some Volcano pictures! :) )Sorry Icelandic peeps, I know these have been posted everywhere :P)

The first eruption, which was very pretty and didn't cause much damage:


Then that one ended, and the new one began, with massive Ash storms and stuff. Sorry, Europe! :P


The flooding from that has caused major damage, here's one small pic of that


This is really creepy, a radar pic, from above the Volcano.

Yeah, that last picture really creeped me out.

That last picture is really creepy - it's like something out of The Mummy!

Yeah, I mean I know the entrance to hell is supposed to be in Iceland, according to some old mythology, but holy crap :P

Great pics, but sorry you have to go through all that! Wow, that "radar" pic looks like a creepy face from Halloween or something..just sayin. LOL!

Take care Hon and hope that there are no hurtful after effects.

Thanks hon, we're all a little worried about the ash, because it can be very harmful to crops/water/animals, and people in that area have to wear masks now, it's gotten so bad.

I´m so happy to hear from you, I hope things calm down for you soon, you're missed in LJ land ;)

That last one makes the volcano look demonic!

I totally chuckled at your "Sorry Europe" comment. I know a few people who are affected by it right now. I'm glad I wasn't planning to fly into Europe anytime soon. (I wouldn't have had a problem with having to stay in Europe longer.)

Hmm... I just realized my sister is in Scotland. I wonder if she was able to get out on time.

Hee! It boggles the mind a little that this is the most disruption of flights in the US since 9/11, and the most disruption of flights in the UK in peace times, ever. Yikes.

Hope your sister isn't stuck in Scotland, I doubt they'll be flying from there anytime soon :S

That last one is so disturbing. Sorry if you posted already and I skipped, but how close are you to the eruption and what impact is it having on you? (Assuming you feel like talking about it.)

It's funny, because I was actually thinking today that in Reykjavík, it's like nothing is happening. It was sunny and clear skies here today (although cold) and we can't see anything, the ash isn't close to us at all, yet.

The eruptions are about 3-4 hours away, almost in the middle of the country, and Reykjavík is on the west coast.

This can change if the wind shifts so that the ash is blowing in our direction instead, and that would mean our international airport will close down, and the US might be affected.

I´m hoping that it won't come to that, though. *crosses fingers*

Gotcha! It's like when an earthquake or tornado or hurricane happens somewhere that isn't here and it's all over the news, but has no bearing on my life whatsoever. But now whenever anyone thinks of Iceland, they'll be thinking of the volcano.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you ass well.
