After six months of awesome weather, these last two cloudy weeks have reminded me that we’ve just been very lucky this year, and now we’re back to normal.

With a forecast like this, it’s unlikely we’ll see comet ISON before it reaches the sun on the 28th, which is unfortunate:

I’ve also been holding out on any outdoor activities because of this weather, that’s why the blog has been quiet for a while, it’s just too dull outside.

This afternoon though, I enjoyed a brisk walk on North Head Trail; big clouds passed overhead mixed with plenty of sunny breaks. Here are some pictures:

In the old days, the entrance to St. John’s harbour was closed at night, by means of a chain that stretched between Pancake Rock and Chain Rock:
