The weather has been strange recently. Toward the end of August the last week or so the temperatures were 70 or less for the highs. Since we like to bicycle, these temperatures were great (it seems that 63-66 are the best temps for us) unlike the normal 85-90 we normally have.

For the last week we have had fog every morning. It is fun to walk in the fog (when there are no cars around); however, bicycling (since we have to cross very busy streets wherever we go) has not been as much fun.

I'm glad that Al Gore's dire predictions haven't been fulfilled!

“Living without faith is like driving in a fog.” Proverb

“Derive happiness in oneself from a good day's work, from illuminating the fog that surrounds us.” Henri Matisse

Fog and smog should not be confused and are easily separated by color. Chuck Jones

Truth is the torch that gleams through the fog without dispelling it. Claude Adrien Helvetius

fog (n) a thick cloud of tiny water droplets suspended in the atmosphere at or near the earth's surface that obscures or restricts visibility (to a greater extent than mist; strictly, reducing visibility to below 1 km) • an opaque mass of something in the atmosphere ; figurative something that obscures and confuses a situation or someone's thought processes
ORIGIN mid 16th cent.: perhaps a back-formation from foggy
