Keep your eyes on Hekla - LIVE!

Large parts of Europe have been hold hostage by some kind of Icelandic version of Mount Doom. Or more precise the ash the Eyjafjallajökull vulcano has been spewing lately. And then of course the speculations about Hekla. Does it go, or does it not go - that seems to be the question.

If you don't want to wait until the news brings the story, tune in to RUV's livestream: Here you can see the notorious vulcano around the clock. Or at least for the daytime hours, as I don't think they have provided stage lights over there.

As for what I think of the lock on North/West Europe's airspace, I'm enjoying every second of it. Sad for those who are stranded, of course. But perhaps we should take the recent events as a wake-up call. Maybe we've been taking the possibility of flying around the world a little but too much for granted.

I'm saying maybe, but I'm quite sure of it.

Nature is answering back, in these clear words: "Don't mess with me! I have a fist, and I'm ready to use it"

And on a sidenote, we're all afraid of the ash harming us. But didn't I learn in geography class in school that vulcanic eruptions leave very fertile ground behind?
