Chillin

Long weekend at the hideaway Saturday thru Tuesday.

Accomplished: Nothing.
As you can see, there was a little bit of snow left from the "big" storm we had the weekend before. We had hoped for 4 feet of snow that weekend. We got about a foot. More please.

Took these 2 pics on the way home yesterday.In the central valley, there's a particular type of fog called Tule Fog. It's different from regular fog because of the cold air from the Sierra Nevada Mountains and if you'd like more technical details, feel free to click on that link.
anyhoo, when it's really thick, it's horrible to drive through. Zero visibility. But yesterday afternoon's drive back to the Bay Area gave us just enough visibility to make the light peeking through very interesting as we drove thru the central valley.

But don't you sometimes love accomplishing absolutely nothing?

I couldn't resist:

Fog

The fog comes
on little cat feet.

It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.

Wonderful photos - sorry the drive proved so difficult, but at least you made it safely and took some good photos. :) xo

I LOVE the windmill photo, Mad! It is a postcard! It would make a fabulous greeting card!
