It's always something . . .
The volcano is erupting underneath a glacier, meaning everything kicks up through a hole in the ice. Some scientists are calling it an “ice-hole,” but other scientists are saying the problem is pre-existing ash, therefore it’s more of an “ash-hole.” - Jimmy Kimmel
I came VERY close to being assigned a trip to Amsterdam that would have put me over there after the eruption. Instead I ended up in Bangkok. And I'm glad. Some pilots over there were being assigned test flights to test the performance of the aircraft in the local airspace. I would have demanded time and a half.
