when it trips the motion sensor on the security cameras causing them to send a pic every two minutes.....

It must be really foggy down by the rivers if up at our slight elevation it is this bad tonight.

On the T.V. this morning they are warning to beware of the freezing fog on sidewalks and parking lots etc. Must be like black ice at ground level. Never heard of freezing fog before. Mike

@Rick....lol....business should be good this year with the multiple o' icy road conditions we have had so far.

Freezing fog on my deck steps surprised me this morning and had me on my arse. The deck itself was only wet, no ice, but the steps were solid ice. Luckily I am not as tall as Freetown Fred and didn't have as far to fall! :)

I saw ice fog for the first time in my life just this past September while in the Sierra Nevada mountains on I-80 in Cali. We left the valley at 3am or so, and it was in the 50's - chilly for that area and time of year. When we hit the Sierras, it was 22°!! I couldn't believe it. Was close to 6k feet in elevation though, vs. the 300' in the valley. Foggy as a bastard too. Was waiting to spin out of control on my summer rubber, but the road wasn't bad - it didn't stick to anything luckily ...

Everything is covered in frost here this morning. Was in the 40's and real wet when I went to bed. Now it's 28°.
