I really never thought I’d be living somewhere where a volcano could disrupt my activities. A volcano in Iceland has been spreading volcanic ash in a cloud over part of northern Europe and they have stopped all flights since Thursday. People are stranded. No one can get home. Many cancelled flights. Luckily I wasn’t travelling anywhere, but I know plenty of people who were. I actually had to write an email for someone yesterday that started with, “Due to the volcanic eruption….” I wasn’t sure how to phrase the email as it was to cancel some plans in another country. I looked all over the internet, but there are no examples of business letters explaining cancellation due to volcano. But I bet there will be after this!
