Thread Name: BS: new eruption in Iceland
Subject: BS: new eruption in Iceland
I know a number of Catters like Iceland, so I have news. There is a volcanic eruption, a small one, going on 25 miles SW of Reykjavik. Here's a video:

There has been no real trouble so far, and apparently Iceland's reaction is that it's kind of cute. The Guardian has the best article I've seen with the geologic details. It said that the extent of the lava was 200 meters or 219 yards, or as I translated to the DH, "two football fields plus the clubhouse."

The units of measure in America are:

inch
foot
yard
breadbox
football field.
