Well, this morning I could hardly see a thing. Thick fog. It has eased off now and visibility is much better as of 11am. I can actually see the bottom runs now!

Hardly any wind at all this morning and another warm one, though not quite as warm as yesterday which did end up being... very warm indeed.

What's in store for the weekend?

Clear and sunny by the looks for tomorrow, though colder than today. Perhaps some snow on Sunday!
