Peasoup in the city

Leaving The Phoenix on Monday night I stepped into a photo-grapher’s wonderland of altered light.

With the city still lit up and a thick fog rolled in everything was just a little weird.

It was exactly the same on the northside tonight. You could see it rolling in about 4.30 when it was still daylight. I have to say driving in it at night was one of the very few times when you could legally drive with your fog lights on! I did see one moron try out his high beams in it though..

Midnight Monday on Gungahlin Drive/GDE, if there was no other lights, I could see fractionally further on high beam than low, 22 year old car so neither that bright. Today @ 7 pm on the bicycle with my much more modern HID, I could only see clearly for five? metres at times.

For the record, the for outside my house looks like THIS.

The orange glow is from the orange streetlights up on the main road.

Lotsa one eyed cars running around on high beam tonight. Idiots.

Just drive from south to north and back, the fog lights work really well in lighting up the side of the road and line markings to help actually see where I was going! Now to educate people that they should only be using them in fog like this…

Runnin’ wild and lookin’ pretty…

(and there’s thunderstorms moving across NSW towards us, will be interesting if they’re still going when they hit us)

It’s also strange that the thick fog was non-existent from Woden southwards earlier.

Okay, that’s it.
(grabs goggle and budgie-smuggler)

I think the fog is awesome, drove past Duntroon at 5pm yesterday to see a thick layer of fog. Around the back of Black Mountain the fog looked like the fields were water… Even coming home at 4pm today in the same spot the fog was returning…

Driving home at 11pm last night visability was shyte, and still is at the moment.. I can’t even see the park across the street.

BLISS I SAY !

“It’s baaaack….”

Current visibility in Lyneham: Bugger-all?(20m max).

typical canberra winter… nothing unusual.

*Gungahlin* of course. ‘Though there could be Mongols hiding out there in the fog, you never know…

jennybel75 jennybel75 5:51 pm 23 Jun 09

Well, up here in Gengahlin, it’s just as pea soupy again this evening. 5:51pm and I can’t see the corner of my street, 1 house away!

As cold and depressing the winters in Canberra can sometimes be, occasionally you get to witness eerie and breathtaking scenery like last night. I love the mornings when the sun is shining, not a cloud in the sky,it is about minus 5 degrees, everything is frosty white and cruchy ubder your feet. Nothing can top the morning I opened my loungeroom curtains about 7 years ago and One Tree Hill in Gungahalin was covered top to bottom in snow. Gotta love this town!!!!!

Yeah, it was my 50th birthday as well.

these fogs lately have been unusual. normally, I’m above the fog in the sun, looking down onto it, but in recent weeks, these all-day fogs cover my place as well.

Just went for a twisty-quest walk (failed, they were out, got the ZigZags… Fail) and it’s still foggy and rather cold. You can see the sun’s position now, but it’s still very dull.

And yet, some people STILL won’t turn their lights on for the drive to work this morning!

I was waiting for zombies to attack me last night in the fog…
They missed their opportunity.

zombies don’t attack you, the fog does.
