Fog bound

Last weekend thick fog hung over the city in the early morning and till midday along some stretches of the Ottawa River. My husband, planning to fly his plane to Quebec on Saturday, had to wait patiently until it lifted or shifted enough from the runway at Rockcliffe Airport before he could safely take off ... at lunchtime. On Sunday morning a visibility reading of  0 statute miles was reported at nearby Gatineau Airport; that is very unusual indeed.
