Volcano Ash Cloud Moves Over UK

A cloud of ash from Iceland’s Grimsvotn volcano is spreading towards central Europe, forcing airlines in Britain to cancel hundreds of flights for the second time in little more than a year.

From CNN:

The ash cloud began to reach London’s Heathrow airport — the world’s busiest international air travel hub — around lunchtime, a computer model indicated. The European air traffic control organization Eurocontrol reported about 500 flights in British airspace would be canceled Tuesday, roughly double the number expected earlier in the day.

The ash cloud was projected to cover all of British airspace by early Wednesday morning and will be densest over Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England, according to Britain’s weather agency, the Met Office.

    I remember a Post here some time ago about the same thing happening in a different Country (was it Switzerland or something?). Anyway, I recall saying that it was going to cause quite a Mess, and that “cleaning-up” was sure to be a lengthy and painstaking process for everything affected by it (Buildings, Food-bearing and Animal Grazing Fields, etc etc). Weird.
