Floating Sea

Today’s walk was dominated by fog. As the day passed, the fog grew thicker, and by the time I went for a walk, I could barely see beyond 200 feet.

Fog is vapor cooled to the point at which it becomes water. Water is the only substance that can change from a gas to a solid or a liquid, all determined by the temperature. This is why fog looks like a floating sea, suspended above the snow.

    1. Great point, Paula. Night driving is especially bad. Same as under water, light either illuminates or blinds, depending on its direction. A car’s headlights hit the water droplets in the fog and the light gets reflected back to the driver, making it impossible to see. Be careful out there!
