Southern Tip of Sweden (pics and video)

Just a few random snapshots and video clips from our weekend (July 2010) with friends down south in Sweden. Thomas rented a house for a few weeks so he could visit his friends and family and also have his own place/space for chilling out with friends. Perfect!

Videos (just playing with my new waterproof toy – left the DSLR at home):

We had a great week visiting my mother, who consults for the UN.  We got to see some of Susanne’s friends, go to the Opera, tour the UN, go to a reception, and eat some great food, hear some great music, and more.

Iceland Volcano: 1) Satellite Imagery; 2) Eruption Video

This morning’s diversion (the creation of this video) started with me pondering the question: “Might Eyjafjallajokull’s ash cloud jeopardize the warm weather we’re starving for after a long winter in Europe?”

Based on this article, it sounds like the current plume isn’t big enough to have much of a global impact.  That’s the good news.  The bad news is that northern Europe will likely suffer some ill effects, even if the volcano is done erupting (last time the eruptions went on for over a year).
