it's called fog

For what little experience I have with snow, I make up for with a life-long association with fog.   And while some of you love your snow, I love my fog -- o.k., most of the time I love fog...   Oh, it's miserable and dangerous to drive through.   And when it lingers for days it can become rather depressing.   But without fog we wouldn't have our majestic coastal redwoods and other plants who heavily depend on the atmosphere for their moisture, such as ferns.   And we wouldn't have these wonderful sweeping vistas, with the softness of cotton.

This is up on our beloved Mount Tamalpais.   Kind of pretty, isn't it?

Here in the San Francisco Bay Area we depend on fog to cool us down during Summer -- we save lots on our utility bills by taking advantage of this natural air-conditioning.

It really is pretty but I don't miss the day after day gray of Pacifica.
love the pictures of the fingers of fog though.
