The Fog of London

Street lights pierce the fog, forming halos in the air of outer London tonight.
I returned to London yesterday morning and it seems winter has truly arrived since I left.

Most of the country is covered by thick fog. The main airport in London, Heathrow, is running reduced services with no domestic flights and delays on other routes.

My flight back from Hong Kong was totally unaffected but 747 technology is more than up to dealing with a bit of fog. However the sunny 20 C (68F) of Hong Kong's "winter" was swapped for fog and -2 C (28 F) at Heathrow (at least at 5 am in the morning).

It is a bit of a shock but it is good to be home for Christmas.

Back with more Hong Kong related posts shortly.
