Is it Ash Wednesday tomorrow? Why not, it's been that all week according to 'official' reports . . . . I've been looking up to see airplane trails and any signs of ashy type clouds - zilch. Being within the Heathrow, Luton and Stanstead corridor also been listening for jet engines . . . . zilch, just lotsa birds we don't normally hear. Has all this been a health and safety edict? Makes you wonder? Er, hang about - went out to the car this morning, a thin layer of gray ash all over it . . . . . gulp!
