Mists of Winter

I took some photos yesterday morning. The fog seems to really roll in around 7.30am where I am. It amused me that the news had been warning motorists to turn on their lights and adjust their speed according to visibility. Yet where I am, we regularly have heavy fog. Often if it's bright sunshine at home, it will still be deep fog at school, which is at the bottom of a big hill. At the top of the hill, when you look out towards the Warburton Ranges, you see the hilltops sitting above the sea of wispy fog below. It's quite a stunning view!

This is outside my front door. See, you always wondered what my picket fence looked like didn't you?! Well there it is ~ the inside of it anyway.


This view is out my back door. Thanks to the flash you can see the fog too clearly LOL. Normally out the back you would see the valley and another hill rising up behind it. Here is a perfect picture of the real view.

Winter has been here officially for five days now and we are yet to hit the coldest months. However, when I am shopping tonight I will be investigating a pair of boots with a low heel to wear with skirts. My feet were frozen solid whilst helping with PE at school on Monday!

It's always interesting hearing about the weather on the other side of the big pond. Here I sit with my wrists sticking to the keyboard in 80 degree temps and high humidity, wishing for a bit of a cool breeze. Do send some my way.

Oh I feel for you. I spend my summers melting, whist my BIL and lots of online friends are feeling like icicles!

Tomorrow when my toes are frozen I'll think of you and send some cold thoughts your way.

I love the fog. It is nice to see inside your picket fence, the garden looks lovely.

I just lvoe those pictures of the fog. I am a fan of fog myself. I just love the way it makes the mornings seem more peaceful. Its like a nice blanket.

Welcome Repairing the Breach :) Yes, I rather like the fog myself. Although, I have to say, I also like it to lift! Yesterday was our first sunny day all week and now we're back to that quiet peaceful shroud over our morning.

We had our heater repaired last week, so we're staying lovely and toasty warm now, thanks Tina :) That, and getting the washing dried!
