What would you grab if a Volcano was erupting nearby??

It's been a while since I posted on here, and that is largely due to other factors in my life taking over, please see this blog, and you'll know what I mean!

Anyway, having heard the news early this morning about the Volcano erupting over Iceland, something that just does not sound right when you pair the words "Volcano" and "Iceland" together. Anyway, there I was this morning watching the breaking news about this, and thoughts immediately turn to the safety of those nearby, but also about how it will affect us?

Will the cloud of ash reach the UK?

The answer of course is a resounding yes, but thankfully it's at a high altitude, so we shouldn't all be in a state like a scene from the film "Silent Hill", so that's good news, but then I thought this could be even worse, as from memory there is a bigger volcano next to the one that's just gone off, which could have catastrophic circumstances if it goes up.

So, on a lighter note, and assuming that people would survive the flow of larva, if you happened to hear an almighty bang, looked out of the window to see red larva heading your way, and you were able to grab one thing to take with you, what would it be???

First thing that springs to mind would be a fire extinguisher but that would last very long, so time to think again, maybe it would be that classic scene from that dreadful film where Pierce Brosnan is actually beating the larva flow in his 4x4 - yes that would obviously happen wouldn't it?

Anyway, what would be the item that you'd take with you??
