Vancouver Fog

Vancouver Fog

I was in Vancouver for meetings today. Sunny day in Howe Sound. As I headed into West Vancouver I drove into fog. I couldn’t resist the 5-minute trip up to the first lookout on Hollyburn. The road led up out of the fog. Heavy damp clouds blanketed the city, but I could see the snow capped mountains to the east and south of Vancouver. The big one is the volcano, Mt. Baker. Lovely seaside weather. Oh, please click the thumbprint.

The links in the sidebar of this blog have been reorganized

WordPress.com provides for a Blogroll in the sidebar. This is supposed to be a list of links to other blogs recommended by the author of this blog. I had been putting all of my recommended links there. Links that are not to blogs have now been shifted to new sidebar lists called, Interesting Links, and RSS Feed. Some of the technical reasons are discussed in the next pane.

The conditions at the summit of Hollyburn Mountain today.

This still amazes me. It is raining in Vancouver. There is no snow on the ground. We found snow as we drove up the hill from West Vancouver — it began somewhere around 500 meters altitude. [Continue in the next pane...]
