Landlocked and Fogged In
Fog isn’t a common occurrence here, but a nice thick blanket of it can roll in any time of the year. This past week-end, we woke up to an icy temperature of just two degrees above freezing, misty rain, and fog.
From inside the cozy house, the view outside was quite dramatic. With most of the background masked, the fading but still bright yellow Tulips and rows of Grape Hyacinth (Muscari) were much more intense in color.
By early afternoon, the temperature had climbed to a balmy 5 degrees above freezing. The weatherman was confidently predicting a temperature of 19C. Normally we wouldn’t believe such nonsense, but sometimes we just hope for a miracle and go ahead with the plans we had made.
In this case, it was a ride on the Harley. We bundled up in all our layers, and headed off to meet with friends. Half an hour later the sun broke through and the rest of the trip we enjoyed a relatively balmy 13C temperature.
I like days like that. The morning was so extremely different from the afternoon that it was like having two days in one!
