    Hamps, what does it look like to you there on the ground?

    That's the strange thing: We have had really good weather every day for a week now. High blue, reasonably warm for the time of year, light breezes. But I had some friends turn up for coffee yesterday afternoon, and their car had a noticeable dust covering.

    The "Scream" part of DJ's pic is how the economy will look if this keeps up. Check this DT report out:

    Volcano chaos could last for months

    The Icelandic volcano causing travel chaos across Europe could go on erupting for months, geologists warned last night.

    More countries were forced to close their air space yesterday as the ash cloud continued to expand across the continent.

    More than 17,000 flights to and from European airspace were cancelled, including all flights from Britain's major airports.

    The Met office reported that volcanic ash had begun to fall across Britain, coating surfaces with a fine layer of dust and raising fears for people with breathing difficulties.

    Meanwhile experts warned of shortages of some foods with produce destined for British shops rotting in airport warehouses in other parts of the world.

    Geologists reported that activity at the volcano increased yesterday, spewing a plume of ash 5.3 miles high into the atmosphere.

    The Icelandic Meteorological Office said the winds blowing the volcanic ash south east to Europe and up into Scandinavia and Russia will continue in the same direction for at least two days and could go on until Wednesday.

    But scientists fear there could be more eruptions from the 5,466-foot volcano, Mount Eyjafjallajökull.
    Sigrun Hreinsdottir, a geophysicist at the University of Iceland, said: "From what we've seen, it could erupt, pause for a few weeks, and then possibly erupt again. It could go on for months."

    As the no fly zone expanded yesterday, so did the chaos.

    Looks like the skies are starting to clear up over the mainland a bit. I wouldn't be suprised to see some central european countries opening their air space up for a bit.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Quite the opposite, actually. This is an example of global cooling. All of that dust and debris will block sunlight and lead to lower temperatures on the continent. Of course, don't expect to hear that from the University of East Anglia...

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
