    The company I work for does random hair tests, I'd be in trouble..."

    I doubt it,
    they would also be breathing it in, more likely they would send you out for chocolate & doughnuts before the shops were empty.

    You ok up there?

    Our local AFD is showing the "ash cloud"

    I guess I need to issue a little clarification.

    I've lived in southern climes and as before - their woods, forests and plains are always under some form of "High Fire Danger" alerts as well as "Smoke Alert - Reduced Visibility Ahead" - you see these signs all the time in and around the North FL, Southern AL, and GA areas due to their ever present fire danger from their forests. You'd rather see them folded up and "click ii or ticket" showing instead, But those are great days to wish for, a good day is to be able to arrive home without the worry of potential evacuation notice blinking away on your answering machine due to the neighbor's having to "bug out" until the firefighters can tame and control the blaze on their side of the "hills".

    So this is nothing new, but only of note, because this is occurring as the ash clouds are so distantly so far "west" and it's not unlike a major Volcanic eruption, (Pinatubo, Mt. St. Helens) where the Ash cloud circles the globe and takes years to dissipate. So I'm not trying to cause a panic, I'm trying to raise a level of concern for the others that are busy with fall seasonal work they have to perform. These events can turn into major cooling concerns as well as frost (See above) as well as forcing early harvests. The dust from these events can form the nuclei for snow as well as heavy rains - but only after they dissipate and separate to allow water vapor to gat a chance to form droplets around their grains,

    The solar forcing and heating of the climate "shaded" by these regional clouds can cool their temperatures during the day, and affects how quickly the radiational cooling that occurs at night which affects Dewponds and the relative humidity present during the night and day.

    So the major concern is these events can cause certain seasons to accelerate, that occur in rapid progression and appear to be cut short as the next season advances (Read this as Winters' Onset) - so I'm posting this as an observation. Because, we have become complacent in thinking that climate change is to the Warm side of things, yes, that can be a short term benefit, but long term effects are also noted in history - and events like these occurring now usually show up as major cooling events for longer periods of time afterwards,
