Beijing Whiteout – View From My Window This Morning

0 Comment

IMG_1159Interesting morning. My wife woke me up an hour early and pointed out the window, showing me that the world had gone away completely in a Stephen King-ish “atmospheric event.” As you can see in the pic, we couldn’t even see the ground (we live on the 17th floor).

But no worries. By the time I was ready to go to work (yes, today is a work day in the PRC due to the *%&$@ holiday schedule), I could, barely, see the ground, and I had stopped bleeding out of my pores. So it’s all good. Optimist that I am, I will just believe that this is heavy fog and that Beijing is on par with the Bay Area in terms of weather.
