The Pyrenees this morning are shrouded in thick cloud with that luminous lower band that indicates probable snowfall. Climbing to an east-facing attic window, I anxiously peer out in the direction of the Pech de Bugarach, 1230m. All is mist and mystery. No sign yet of the alien star-cruiser splitting apart the sacred mountain as it rises toward new horizons, bearing the elect, while the hapless rest of us await the end.
Use this as an open thread to record your last thoughts on earth.
[UPDATE 18.55 GMT (i think)] now they're saying it's between 23.00 and midnight... Patience!
