Airplanes in UK Grounded Due to Volcano

You know that wedding I've been looking forward to for about forever?? We're headed there tomorrow, and it's a good thing we're training instead of flying. All the flights out of Edinburgh are grounded due to a volcano in Iceland and the ash that's being put off into the air because of it. Isn't that nuts?!?!? Crazy thing is: this volcano hasn't erupted in over 200 years.

Here's a video of what the volcano in Iceland looks like:

Not only are flights out of Scotland being interrupted, but now flights down south are, too. It's being said that the warning of ash poses a "significant safety threat to aircraft."

Update: You can monitor the traveling ash here
