Rann, wow, poor sheep! I'm glad it was temporary. I kept thinking about the volcano even when I wasn't on the computer. Funny how things like that stay with you. It's on the ''other'' side of the world if I had to walk there, LOL!

Wow, the rain barrel shows how dirty the water is, and the little boy with the shovel shows how mucky. I couldn't imagine trying to shovel the dry away. I'd pray for rain and a lot of it.

All I can say is what a mess!

Sally - yes I felt very sorry for them .... some are still blind :( But they are supposed to recover eventually .... hope they do.
At least the eruption only lasted a few days .... although it managed to spew out considerably more amount of ash in those few days than Eyjafjallajökull did in a month last year. It's been declared officially over and the clean up is going well. The area got some much needed rain last week, but many farms have been hit pretty hard .... and not much chance of a good crop of hay this year where the ash is thickest. It will take a while but things will get back to normal eventually. The government will offer summer jobs for students and people on unemployment benefits to help farmers with the clean-up this summer.

Rann, I haven't had time to get here, but have been thinking about the volcano. I'm glad it's done and so glad to see it rained! I imagine this is another set back for the farmers. Lets hope it goes back to sleep for a long long time.

Thanks Sally - it should be quiet for a while at least. It's been fairly active so it's not unlikely it'll go off again in 10+ years or so ..... It is a setback, but I think things will get back to normal fairly soon. It's a good thing it was over so quickly. Thumbs up

That's a nice time limit to get back to normal. It sure was interesting learning about it first hand. I've learned I don't want to live near one, LOL! I do respect what it is tho. It's a deep connection to the earth. We can't imagine how hot our core is.
