In Limbo....


Well, as you may be aware, there is this enormous black ash cloud made up of tiny crusty little black spheres of hard ash! Apparently this can cause an engine of a plane to shut down completely... thus you crash! Well, as a result all the European airports are shut down, including Paris and all surrounding airports except for Corsica for some reason! We've been looking for flights from Spain, Portugal, Italy... nothing is available. And I watch the news and I am sick at all the poor people stuck in hotels and airports all over the world! It's awful so I am pleased I am still home sleeping in my own bed...
I even received a call from someone I know going to the show this week in Nantes and she lives in Germany - but get this, she's stuck in Charlotte NC. Was scheduled to leave Friday and is now scheduled for Tuesday and that's a maybe! We are scheduled to leave TODAY!
However, we have been waiting for our flight from Atlanta to Paris to cancel... but all weekend it says it's' on time'! When something like this happens it's called 'limbo', yes? Oh my... so do we pack or don't we pack! This morning we finally got through to the airline and get this.... it's not canceled, still going, but the big wigs in Europe are meeting right now to make some decisions...
So the question is... do we pack, get to Atlanta and then they cancel the flight to Paris? Do we risk the long flight through the volcanic ash... Oh how to be brave and ferocious!

You know I will update you!

Personally I think I would stay home . . . but I tend to stay on the safe side of things. Good luck with the decision.

Wow that is a scary thought flying through that ash BUT I would think even scarier would be the thought of being stuck in an airport somewhere--those poor people...hope they let you know soon!
