More Fog

Something interesting happened to the fog today. It froze to the trees. I heard about it, but didn't see it. By the time I went out at lunch, you could hear what sounded like rain on the underbrush, but if you looked at the pavement in the parking lot, no tell-tale splotches of rain.

Turns out, I discovered, that it was essentially hailing, but only if you were under a tree. The weather had warmed up (ha) enough to cause the ice chips to fall away from the trees.

So you had the sound of rain, but as long as you stayed out from under trees, you stayed perfectly dry.

I did not stay dry, or even warm, so now I'm on my third cup of coffee for the day already, because I need the warmth.
