Good 40º dark cloudy rainy morning.
Yesterday the dense fog lifted early and clouds came in. The rain started in the late afternoon.
Picture of the Day
The rock band Metallica achieved a Guinness World Records title after becoming the first musical act to play a concert on all seven continents. Metallica actually performed on all seven continents in a calendar year, following tour dates in North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and Antarctica in 2013. The band set the record in a transparent dome at Carlini Station in Antarctica. Unlike regular Metallica gigs, the Antarctica concert was held without amplification due to the icy continent's fragile environment. Instead each song was transmitted live to the audience through headphones.
