Just for a change from our heavy frosts and sunny days, today we have had heavy frost and thick fog.
It has been so heavy and murky that the street lights have been on for most of the day.
The fog lifted slightly around midday but never broke up, and now it has settled back down again like a great silent white curtain covering everything.
It may have been sunny on the other side of Hamilton, as I was told Auckland had a sunny afternoon. Fog can be very localized in our city, and as we live between the river and a peat swamp the fog can be quite bad here sometimes.
I checked my phone before, and the temperature was six degrees, feels like four, with a humidity of 98%. And they are forecasting showers for tomorrow. Winter!
The fire got lit at lunchtime, once we realized the sun wasn’t going to appear, and I have spent a quiet afternoon sitting in front of it doing some family tree research on my laptop.
Millie kept trying to jump up to sit on me – she lands on the computer and bounces off again, leaving me with all sorts of weird messages and symbols on my screen.
Mittens had the right idea though, she curled up on her fluffy blanket on the bed and ignored the world around her.
It is son’s turn for cooking dinner tonight (I think we are having nachos), so I can continue to vegetate for the evening in my favourite chair. Might even be time for a little pre-dinner tipple.
Be happy 😊
