    Interesting to see the activity at Öræfajökull and then read your article at http://www.jonfr.com/volcano/?p=1347 which could easily be a description of the situation there today 🙂

    I will read the comments about Oraefajokull, and I keep lurking about Jon’s site. Things will happen in their own time. I think events will continue to unfold. Perhaps, those events have already started.
