Outside my house at noon.
I've got some anti-mist treatments - they don't really work

The Duke's Pass - a great road with beautiful scenery. You'll

***Update*** My good lady informs me that Kilmarnock, 12 miles in the opposite direction, had clear skies.
***Update #2*** The weather lady rubs it in by telling me that Eskdalemuir (60 miles south of here) had its warmest November day on record.
