Mother Nature

Yesterday morning we had some heavy fog roll through town. You know, the kind that picks a long narrow path and just hovers there. We were up really early (my husband had a 5:30 am flight). The sky above our house was clear and full of stars. On the way to the airport, we drove through this thick, eerie fog. But once the sun came up, it quickly burned away.

Later that morning I took our dog to the dog park, which was right in the middle of the fog path. Everything there was still heavily frosted and beautiful. So I grabbed my iPhone and snapped a couple of quick pictures:

But this is the picture I really wanted to share. This fence had all these little frost-cicles going in every direction! I wonder if that's caused by wind?

Very pretty.

  2. I love frozen fog. We have had a lot of fog lately, but it has been too warm for it to freeze.
