View from the office


The fog horns are sounding in the channel as ferries and shipping traffic creep through the thick fog banks that have been moving in and out all day and evening. There is a strong high pressure zone over us at the moment bringing beautiful sunny weather except right at sea level where the fog is pea soup thick. Today, driving over the Lion's Gate bridge into Vancouver, the towers were just peeking out of the fog and Stanley Park was subsumed in it but for the tallest tree tops.

There are times on the coast when it can be like this for one or two weeks at a time. This high pressure system will break apart early in the week, but while it's here, the weather is enchanting.
