Volcano in Iceland ash brings the United Kingdom to a halt (photos)

The volcano eruption in Iceland is still affecting Britain, and there’s no good news on that front as was hoped for Monday’s flights into and out of the UK.

In fact, the Met Office (known formally as the Meteorological Authority for the United Kingdom) forsees a clould of volcanic ash over Europe for early tomorrow.

In a statement, the Met Office said:

‘The Eyjafjallajökull volcano is still erupting and weather patterns continue to blow volcanic ash towards the UK.’

These professionals report ‘dust in the atmosphere and on the ground’.

Translation: Flying is not a wise idea in these conditions. In a call to British Airways, I found out that all flights both into and out of London have been canceled for tomorrow, Monday, April 19, 2010.

So, it seems the UK is still stuck in the thick of the aftermath from the volcano in Iceland. I wasn’t planning a trip to the British Isles for tomorrow but I do know some folks who were going but have had to cancel their trips. How about you? Did the volcano in Iceland mess up your travel plans? Let me know, please.
