Retrograde Mercury -- Just Saying

NYT: A cloud of ash from an Icelandic volcano shut down much of air travel to and from Northern Europe for a third straight day as a massive transportation gridlock spread around the world. Actual evidence of the ash was being detected in Britain, where air travel was likely to remain shut down until Monday.

Scientists were uncertain when the ash, reported to be drifting at altitudes commonly used by civilian jetliners, would dissipate.

Really?? That truly problem-child Mercury! LOL! When can we hope for a change? Honestly -- I have never seen photos likes the ones from Heathrow Airport -- the outside scenes are soooooo quiet ... compared to the chaos of the passengers within the buildings! I do feel sorry for folks throughout the EU who are holding celebrations like weddings this weekend!

Cheers! Jan at Rosemary Cottage

I should be travelling to England for my MIL´s funeral. My poor husband is stuck there dealing with it all on his own. Shift cloud, shift - please!
