Again, sorry for the blogging blackout...just lots and lots of things going on. My apologies, and I'll try to keep things up to speed.
I'm fascinated by the Icelandic volcano (the name of which no non-Icelander seems to be able to pronounce). I read a description the other day that said the ash cloud was so big it had its own lighting bouncing around inside of it. I couldn't really imagine that, but then came this picture, in which you can actually see some of the lightning.
More super cool pictures can be seen here.
