December 2010 continues to defy Newfoundland weather standards with a long and weary spell of LRLDLF:

Lots of Rain, Lots of Drizzle and Lots of Fog.

I don’t mind a few days of RDF but a week or a month of the stuff is just too much, especially since this will probably be our last winter in Newfoundland. On the other side of the Atlantic, my friends and family in Holland are having a real winter when normally they’re the ones who have the RDF. Well, not so much F as a lot of R and D.

The people at the Weather Network have put up an article about why this is happening.

To compare this foggy day with December 18th in previous years, let me just go ahead and show you 2008, 2009 and 2010:

To clarify, yes the middle car is a different car, it’s a rental due to the canary car being at the garage.
