England isn't really very foggy or misty. A lot of foreigners think it is though. In the middle of nowhere (the countryside) it happens more but I rarely see it in towns and cities. I never saw foggy afternoons in 12 years of living within 0.25 miles of the River Thames. Sometimes in the morning, but not the afternoon. Just my 2.c.

Another stereotype of British weather is that Europeans (I mean from Italy etc..) think it's always raining, when we get less rain than most European cities, for example.

Going on topic what do I like about other forumers location's climate:

NorthStarDelight (Atlanta GA): Lives in the best climate in the world. Cfa climate with warm humid summers, storms and mild winters.
Full Overcast (Melbourne AUS): Mild winters, warm summers (by our standards).
Tarzan_Taborda (Portugal): Gets a lot of sun.
SophieLL (Buenos Aires): Like Atlanta but with milder winters.

Oh really? I saw an episode of Catweazle and there was mist on it. Care to explain that?

Another time on Coronation Street, Stan Ogden got wet chips, from the rain. That doesn't fit your little narrative... does it?

Nice things about others climate: To all those who live where there is regular snowfall (you know who you are) - good places if you like building snowmen.

No because I'm not going to feed the trolls and because you know precisely what I mean.

England has always sounded wonderful to me... plan to go there one day.. Stonehenge, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, pubs, and the formal gardens especially in & around Stratford On Avon (which i understand have the most glorious roses on earth)

Some places in the UK can be rainy and foggy like the Shetlands.

Well when you come over then I hope the weather is nice and foggy for you. Best come in December for that.

Sandyluvstotravel and I were talking about England.

Nobody referenced the whole UK or Shetland Islands (which is Scotland and not even on the mainland).

Fog is rather common in Leeds, and can last all day in certain setups. It's been somewhat lacking this year though.

Zagreb - winters are much warmer than I like, but summers are mild for its latitude.

It depends where you go. We hardly ever get fog here. Also in the SE I hardly saw it. Some places get it, particularly in more rural areas. I think England is actually a poor choice for fog compared to most other climates.
