Chaos Rules North-west European Airspace Today....

Have you looked at the breaking news on CNN, BBC or whatever tv-channel today?

Yesterday was - ok an Icelandic vulcano erupted....try to pronounce the name of the vulcano: Eyjafjallajokull.

This morning.... well some parts of the European airspace on Iceland, GreatBritain, Norway and Denmark might be closed...... Now: Icelands biggest airport is still up and running ???!!! WHAT!! But the airports in Norway, Sweden, Great Britain, Ireland, Denmark, Germany, Belgium and Netherlands are closed.

My job is dependant on transport - I would say: half by road and the other half..... yes, take a guess. And most of my suppliers - guess what geographic location they are at....

Normally my day is full of challenges - not any work day is like the others - but this is a PROBLEM really causing a headache..

Oh well..... Mother Nature is showing us, that she rules us and not the other way around.

And airports shutting down due to the ash-cloud - well safety first....

Let's see what tomorrow brings.
