And another volcano erupts when I'm not there

Yes, another volcano in Iceland has erupted and yet again I miss out on seeing lava. I was close to this volcano when I was in Iceland a couple of summers ago. I skidooed over the glacier that covers it, though I was further south. I also came close when I did a trip into the interior of Iceland which is pretty much closed to everyone in the winter. Because of distances and difficulty of getting transport in this region this Grimsvotn volcano isn't as easy to get to as Eyjafjallajokul would have been when that erupted. 

One of these days one will erupt when I'm either already nearby or when I'm in a position to get on a plane (assuming they're still flying) and head straight over to see it.
