I've had volcano ash on my car for a few days now. It looks, as you can imagine, a mess, but I'm leaving it there for fear that washing the vehicle would result in ash being rubbed into the surface of the paint. Hopefully a shower of rain would do the trick safely. Of course, I'm not complaining. After all, the poor souls in Iceland have to live through a thousand times worse than a filthy, volcanic-ash-covered car.
My cousin sent me these pictures (below) yesterday which made me realise the real impact of what is at stake for the Icelanders. My thoughts are with them.
Note: I would've given credit here, but I don't know who these photos belong to.
