Is it just me...

or is the absence of plane noise a treat? Putting aside the hassle and despair it is causing not to mention the money, the silence is wonderful, especially if you live near a flight path. All because of a volcano in Iceland.

But ever since the Wright Brothers had the dream of taming the skies, it was inevitable that the aeroplane would become a vital part of our economy. So, yes I am enjoying the quiet skies, but lets hope that volcanic ash cloud clears soon and we get the planes back where they belong. Until then my thoughts are with those who are stranded or in any way affected by this act of nature. Take care.

  1. It sure is a nice break not hearing the jets up above but like you say, attention now turns to those who are stranded away from family & friends.

    Fingers crossed this whole situation, which has been nice for a short period, resolves asap and the 'go ahead' to fly again is given.
