Hi Bob Shannon.

I don't get alot of travellers from Ireland in my area and there are
really few travellers over the winter time. Alot worse weather for me in
that time.

I am about 50 - 100 km away from the nearest volcanos (four to be
exact), but they have been quiet for long time, at least for 10.000
years. However, earthquake swarms sometimes appears on those areas and
last for long time. I might be able to pickup those earthquakes.

Here is a volcano map of iceland.

I didn't find a map of Iceland showing it's fracture zones. However,
there are one west of me and one east of me. But i am between two
fracture zones that are active, however the one west of me doesn't move
often. There is also a fracture zone south of me (about 200 km away from
me) and that is active today. It did producse a two 6,5 ricther scale
earthquakes in the year 2000.

Past three weeks have been quiet in Iceland, i haven't seen one
earthquake over 3 on the ricther scale.
