Fog

Bloody hell, set off for work at 5.45am this morning, bright sunshine. just north of York I hit thick fog, my visor and prescription sunglasses steamed up, couldn't see a thing. Stopped and grabbed a cloth and my glasses were soaking wet. Moved off and 3 seconds later misted up again. I stopped 4 times and ended up propping my glasses on the end of my nose so i could peer over the top of them. After about 10 miles the sun came out again.
My visor has pinlock which usually works a treat. My jacket was wet too.
Good old fashioned pea souper

    I think the main problem was going from relatively mild sunny weather to wet and cold and the pinlock etc just couldn't cope. I have a 60 mile journey and was thinking it was going to take all day to do it. Don't expect that in June. Literally 5 minutes earlier I saw guys in short sleeve tee shirts walking around York city centre (mind, must've been too cold at 6am)

    Ha yah, that will teach you getting up so early:)

    I canr recal the last time I saw bad fog.
    Danger wise, its akin to torrential rain on the motorway when you have to slow down to 30MPH and pray eveyone else is diong the same thing. efin scary.

    in both cases, best to get off and wait until its less severe - IF safe to do so. Never stop on the hard shoulder - thats the most dangerous thinhg of all!

    yes, i was thinking i'd stop for a coffee but by the time i found a shop it had cleared. Yes funny how the mind work, you get up at a daft hour and think well i must plough on or i shouldve stayed in my pit. Even the rear view mirrors were fogged up.
