Fog alert

The television is full of "fog alert" notices these mornings. It seems to be the typical thing this time of the year.

I don't mind fog as long as it's not so think the road is barely visible. I've been in fog like that, something out of a Steven King novel, and it's frightening to say the least.

But usually it's not quite that heavy and as long as the driving is safe, I find the fog amazing. It has the same effect that a bridal veil does, cloaking everything in a sort of secrecy that makes the world fascinating. Strange shapes and eerie forms appear everywhere and things take on a new look in every direction. It can be beautiful. Watching the fog literally roll in holds its own fascination and living here with large open fields makes it a real sight to see.

Fog season is upon us. I'm just going to enjoy it.
