But seriously, some astronomers think that this could be a fragment of 4179 Toutatis, an asteroid that has passed near the Earth recently and that yesterday was visited by a Chinese probe which sent us these pics:

Quite normal speed, here in central Italy (I'm visiting parents near Ancona, 400 km from Brescia - 300 of which under a thick fog)...

EDIT: No, the site is actually slower than usual.

It's called radiation fog: during the day the sun heats the ground, and at sunset the ground releases its heat to the upper atmosphere. Air near the ground cools off and humidity passes its phase transition temperature, from gas to liquid (dew point). It is characteristic of places with high insolation and no winds - and Po Valley is both.

At least, these days is mostly fog. My older relatives (from Conegliano area) tell horror stories about how you'd get a sore throat and harsh eye from merely going outside on the worst smog days of the late 1960s in certain places a bit more in a southern direction.

I felt this only once.
The year was 1999. The place, Babylon 5... no, seriously, it was Bologna. Thick fog and I literally couldn't breathe...

I've just realized that winter starts on 21.12.2012 at 12.12 pm CET. Too many 12s.

On Baker Island and Howland Island (both uninhabited) it will still be 20.12.2012. Looking at the numbers, that's probably where it will start.

So I parked my car in Vienna near the hotel Hadrigan where I stay in Ottakring.
I also parked there in June and it was free. It seams since then many zones in the city were made with limited parking and payed. No sign on the street, no parking machine, nothing, only a small sign on the street were payed limited begins, but when you navigate and try not to drive the wrong turn, you don't see such nonsense. I must say I never saw such tourist trap before. Everywhere I went until now, you have a sign on each intersection, with all details regarding pay, time, and of course a machine were to buy the parking ticket.

Of course I got this morning a fine for parking without a ticket, in value of 36 euros !!!
This I wish those who came up with this ripoff to go f*** themselves!

And in order for the day to be complete, I drove to Bratislava, parked in a private parking, what I saw as 4.5 euros per day, it was per hour, so I had to pay 27 euros for 5.5 hours of parking. At least this time I didn't read the sign well, still even in Zurich underground parking was 2 times cheaper. And this one in Bratislava was not even a garage, but free air.

About Christmas Market.
I visited Vienna, Graz and Bratislava.
I have to say the one in Bratsilava was the nicest. No tourist hordes, local and friendly atmosphere, didn't have that fake feel you get in tourist places.
