  • Frosty, if you're going anywhere any time soon, pack your patience






    Some of the most active volcanoes in the world were currently erupting on the Kamchatka Peninsula in southeast Russia over the weekend, shooting ash tens of thousands of feet into the air. On Sunday, shifting wind patterns put scientists on alert for ash that may potentially obstruct flight paths across the Bering Sea and Western Aleutians.

    Russia’s Klyuchevskoy volcano spurted ash 33,000 feet in the atmosphere on Saturday, the National Weather Service wrote. The eruptions continued on Sunday, with ash shooting 26,000 feet into the air.

    The volcano has been erupting for almost a week, but wind patterns shifted over the weekend, said Jeff Freymueller, coordinating scientist with the Alaska Volcano Observatory. On Sunday, winds were carrying the ash east over the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands.
    This is likely to screw up a bunch of air travel between North America and Asia. Depending upon how the wind shifts, this ash cloud easily wind up right in the flight path to get to Japan, Korea, and China.

    No one will be denied:
    Big law suits and bathroom toots;
    We're all getting Dixie-fried.
    But somewhere Hank and Lefty
    Are rollin' in their graves
    While kudzu vines grow over signs that read "Jesus Saves."

    Thanks for the warning. No immediate travel plans, but I am still battling with Hong Kong authorities trying to convince them that I will not be invading China while passing through with two bolt action rifles in June.

      You don't need to declare anything in Hong Kong, so just put it in your carry on.
