How Has The Volcanic Ash Cloud Affected You?

Day Six of the great cat-ash-trophe (has anyone thought of a catchier name yet?) and a few flights are resuming amid uncertainty. At first, it seemed that our tropospheric guest would mostly affect stranded travellers and people employed in the travel industries. As the days have gone on, it's becoming increasingly clear that many aspects of normal daily life are also being touched by the disruption. Flower and fruit imports, school openings and event cancellations/disruptions are all well documented. But we wondered how the ongoing situation is affecting people in other ways. Is anyone having trouble getting medicines or certain foods? Have you had to rearrange gatherings, weddings or other events? Who's got the most bizarre tale to tell? Or maybe it's affected you in a positive way and you've been enjoying the clear blue skies and hazy sunsets (if so, stick your photos in the Londonist Flickr pool).
