As long as there is ash in the air, aviation is affected. That could be a few
days ... or a few years.

The header of Jean's posting shows it as posted 11:52 pm Thursday in
time zone -5 (presumably CDT in the US), so I assume her "yesterday"

Evelyn referred to Wednesday. Please indicate which newscasts on
*Wednesday* were showing lines of planes grounded at Heathrow, which
did not close until midday Thursday?

language too badly.
