Today I had a slow Saturday morning start and listened to the reports on the radio of the quite in the London parks with no planes flying overhead. I felt sorry for all those who are stranded where they do not want to be. Some friends of mine are stuck in Portugal, their holiday over, but unable to come home.
As I cycled into the office this morning along the cycle path I stopped to take a photo of the sky. I noticed that the sky looked different. There was almost no cloud yesterday, and today it looks unusual. Is that volcanic dust I see or is it cloud?
I wonder what it will do for people with breathing problems when it all starts to fall. Perhaps rain would help.
The Bible records a time when there was dust that filled the land. In the book of Exodus chapter 9, verses 8 to 12 we see the following:
Then the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, Take handfuls of soot from a furnace and have Moses toss it into the air in the presence of Pharaoh. It will become fine dust over the whole land of Egypt, and festering boils will break out on men and animals throughout the land. So they took soot from a furnace and stood before Pharaoh. Moses tossed it into the air, and festering boils broke out on men and animals. The magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils that were on them and on all the Egyptians. But the LORD hardened Pharaoh’s heart and he would not listen to Moses and Aaron, just as the LORD had said to Moses.
Oh no! Boils!
I better get to the shops for some Germolene cream.
