Today we were clouded in from dawn to dusk except for a 2 hour respite in the middle of the day. When I got dressed this morning, my mine clothes had been cold and damp and my socks felt like they had been worn by a sweaty footballer. The mountains that usually surround us were unable to be found. I could have walked off the edge of the plateau and fallen 100 metres to my death. I got wet just walking through the mist. As I write, rain sits suspended in white air.
