Anyone been affected by "The Ash"? My other halve is stuck in Egypt. She was only supposed to be there overnight, but been 4 days and counting now...
My eldest daugter, ex-wife, sister, and nephew (yeah, I know, it's all very modern and pally) are stuck in Lanzarote. Were meant to fly back on Thursday, spent the day at the airport, but went back to resort where they've been enjoying themselves but running up debts ever since.
Looks like we've all been affected with friends and family, What happens if it goes on for another week and perishable cargo can't be imported. My daughter would be devastated if she can't have a banana.
The economic implications at this already difficult time is just terrible for some industries not just airlines.

We were due to fly out to Florida Saturday just gone but the flight was obviously cancelled. We have rescheduled for a week from now but I don't hold much hope. My 4 year old daughter is devastated. She had been looking forward to going to Disneyworld for such a long time. I only hope we don't also lose out on the cost. We could potentaially be losing about £4K.
I'm a man of easy distraction, so it's been a great way of finding time not to study for the exam i have in 30 mins. That's the ash cloud, not the jazz hands.

OK. First direct conequence for me - hardly as significant as Marc's, but important to me.
Tomorrow night I was meant to be travelling to another club where a very well respected filmmaker in amateur circles is giving a talk/seminar about judging amateurs movies. Many of you know I rather enjoy serious discussion about movies posted hear and I'm very keen to go. The guy is travelling down from Newcastle to Reading so it's not something which can be easily repeated.
I've just learned that my ex-wife, daughter (20), sister and neice (20) (I got it wrong when I said nephew earlier) are being shipped via plane from the Canaries to Bordeaux, train to ST Malo, then ferry to Portsmouth where they "wondered" if I could pick them up - some time tomorrow late afternoon/evening.
Now, my car isn't going too well at the moment. Is it too cruel of me to use that as an excuse?
