News release: 17 May. Fog fog fog.
|I got up for a pee at about 2am, beautifully clear, but you could just
see an enormous bank of cloud coming up the valley. Woke up at 4 in a
peasouper with drizzle, you could tell this wasn't going to clear. It
hasn't all day.
I've got a bit of a cold too so especially after yesterday's pony dramas
it was nice to get a really good night's sleep.
It is a bit frustrating. We have been waiting for low winds at
high altitude and now we have them, winds at the summit of less than 35
Km/h. I received an email last night from the good folks at
Adventureweather.com "Forecast very interesting, haven't seen an early
low wind forecast like this in the last 10 years!" - perfect for us if
only we could see beyond the end of our noses down here....
You never know, tomorrow could be the perfect day... but
unlikely. The weather maps show a mass of moisture being dumped south
of the Himalayas by that tropical cyclone in the Bay of Bengal for the
next five days. I
suspect that is why we are in a cloud.
