Last Thursday morning, switching on the TV whilst we had our early morning "cuppa" we heard the local newsreader say "all flights out of Bristol are cancelled due to volcanic ash". OH and I looked at each other and at the same time exclaimed "volcanic ash"! However all was revealed in national news a few minutes later. Of course we are all aware now of the effects the volcanic eruption in Iceland is having and I have just heard on our late news that the disruptions are to continue in spite of there being hopes earlier today that restrictions may be lifted tomorrow. A new cloud of ash is making its way towards us.
We have been told that we are likely to see some wonderful sunsets due to the layer of volcanic dust in the atmosphere. We are fortunate that where we live we often see magnificent sunsets but they have been brighter over the last few days - this was tonights.
