I was in the Blue Mountains in the end of November (2010) and it was the same - cold and foggy. I only saw a silhouette of the Three Sisters, and even that just for a few seconds. Three weeks later there were severe floods in Australia and the Bruce Highway was impassable at places.

Due to Photobucket f*cking up, most images won't be visibile in my old posts. If you need anything specific, please write me.

There are a lot of places in Bulgaria where such visibility is considered normal during winter and happens almost at daily basis. For example on Radi's favorite Struma Autobahn's current ending near Dolna Dikanya, which is situated in a wet valley between several small mountains and hills.

Warm air from Sweden is just attacking the SW areas of Finland. We had -17C today morning, and it is now -1C. For Thursday, the maximum forecasted temperature is +2C and light rain is expected. That means traffic problems due to extremely slippery roads.

+1 As Chilio mentioned that's quite normal in Bulgaria as well. In fact, just a couple of days ago I was driving in such low visibility at night that I almost hit a truck in front of me. It's quite common in mountain regions with a lot of wetlands.

I just discovered a Google Maps fail:
http://maps.google.it/maps?hl=it&ll=...42272&t=m&z=15
Until the Portogruaro bypass (SS14 var) is completed (likely late 2013 - early 2014), at the end of the already opened part there is a sign with "uscita obbligatoria" (mandatory exit). Google labelled "obbligatoria" like it was the real name of the exit.

Scientists have announced that a discovery of another planet identical to our own called Earth 2.0 is likely to be next year.

I look forward to another sub forum or an few extra threads to discuss their roads.

I was reading some brochure on new plans for Mont St-Michel, in France. Not only have they closed the causeway to private car traffic, they will also demolish it in 2015 and substitute it for a pedestrian and horse-drawn carriage bridge with a mound on its end that will cut off the island from the continent on very high tides
