It came in yesterday as I drove my son to school. It's actually very pretty, giving the tall pine trees in my neighborhood a mystical forest feel. It's even prettier along the river as the fog settles on the water, making me think of misty moors far far away.
Visibility right now is still pretty good. By January I would barely be able to see the outline of the trees. My son and I were caught in the fog on the freeway at night a few years ago. We got lost coming home and the only way I could tell which way to go was to follow the truck in front of me as closely as I could. It's a very surreal feeling when you can't see what's around you. I prayed the whole 60 miles and have never EVER taken that drive in winter again.
What's the scariest weather you have ever driven in? I imagine snow can be even more daunting. I'm a California girl but we don't have typical California weather here so we're more prepared than the people living in the milder areas. You should see them when they get a few inches of rain!
I hope you're having cozy weather where you are. I know some of you are already knee deep in snow. We are 2 hours away from the snow up in the Sierras and on very, very rare occasions we will get a light dusting here in the city. My son is getting over a yucky cold and I'm hoping I'm not getting it too.
Have a comfy, cozy, creative weekend.
