Yesterday and today have been very misty. I laughed at a newsreader who called it a “real pea-souper”. As someone who experienced the impenetrable fogs in England caused by coal smoke pollution in the mid 20th century I can tell you this bears no resemblance whatsoever to a “pea-souper”. We used to walk to school with scarves over our noses and mouths and when we arrived the places where we had breathed in would be black with the pollution particles! Here’s a look at an autumn misty morning in my Sydney garden.
