Fog can be deadly in the central valley of California. Over the years it's been responsible for untold numbers of chain reaction pile ups on the highways. It's called Tule Fog, and you actually can't see the end of the hood of your car. Here's an image from space.

I have been in fog like that. And the only person I would willing to travel with under those conditions was my brother-in-law. He was the best driver I have ever known. I have seen him avoid an accident that was destine to happen right at us. A driver was coming down the wrong side of the road and he was able to avoid it completely. But the next person behind wasn't so lucky. Fortunately he wasn't injured. But the drunk driving the wrong way was. We have had a few pileups like that here on Route 1A and 107. Both have water on both sides.

Not crazy about drving in it, it's why the car has fog lights. I love walking in it

Holy cow, princess. Sure hope you're not in the avalanche area!

It's getting cold here, I think we're in for a cool spell here in my neck of the woods. Below freezing tonight, and the weather reports are saying down in the 20's tomorrow night. I brought my houseplants in from the patio, just in case.

No matter what, I won't turn on the heater during the night...I can't stand sleeping with hot air blowing on me.

Really heavy clouds and temps are dropping slowly.

We've had March weather since the 24th. It has been 50-45F. Almost all the snow has melted, and the Girls (and boys) are loving it. They hate snow. I'm sure the weather will change, but for Ottawa, Ontario this is not normal December weather...keep it coming! I don't like the cold and really like that I haven't had to keep the woodstove going.
