The volcano

#2
My daughter is currently performing in Ohio due to fly back early hours Tuesday. Think they will be delayed by a couple of days as they must surely deal with the backlog of people who have been sitting around at airports waiting first.

The worrying thing is this could go on for months and there is absolutely nothing we can do about it:sigh:

believe it or not it works the opposite way. If your flight is cancelled it's cancelled and they'll get you on one asap. If your flight is scheduled to go then it won't be delayed to clear a backlog. So if the planes are flying by then shell be fine. I assumed they'd clear the backlog first but was talking to a neighbour who's a commercial pilot and he said that's not the case.

My friends brother in law is in the US in honeymoon been told it'll be around 10 days before they can find an available seat to get them home.

I've got 3 lots of friends stuck at the moment - my sister and her husband are trying to make their way from Madrid by road, train etc - no hire cars to be had! They are keeping us up to date on Facebook - I'm on the edge of my seat - someone told me yesterday that the last time this volcano erupted - it went on for 2 years - I'm due to go away in 3 weeks so am gong to do a bit of Googling today!

We have quite a few guests still here on the Costa Blanca. They are waiting about a week at the moment to get on next available flights home.

Lets hope the ash disappears quickly. It must be horrible to be abroad not knowing when you can get back to work, school, pets etc etc.

My SIL and OH were due to fly to Spain , as it was no go she rang on fri to say could they come to us, but they can't get a train as they are fully booked! I feel so sorry for all the people who have been stranded. Just goes to show you can't beat Mother Nature!

When all is said and done I would much rather be safe on the ground wishing I was in the sky than vice versa!!

It is VERY inconvenient but could have been so so much worse.

I too feel sorry for all those stranded.
