While I wouldn’t want to live in a climate where it’s foggy all the time, I do love the occasional fog in the winter—thick like pea soup, only vague shapes visible, sounds muffled so much you can hear dewdrops hit the ground. That’s what I woke up to today. An early Christmas present from Mother Nature!
