It's another foggy morning. This pattern has held for the last day or so. Along with this soupy fog, we have extremely mild temperatures. It's 53º F, as I pound out this page. When the temperatures hit this area on the thermometer, throw in some rain, and melting snow, driving can be like trying to traverse through a curtain of whiteness. I find it in many ways a lot trickier driving then in a heavy snow. Throw in the fact that one of my headlights seems to be a bit off kilter and shooting upwards instead of straight ahead, when the high beam is on, and you've got a recipe for caution. You better slow down. One of J's games on his old Sega System was a car race game. We played it all the time. As you sent cars racing and careening off the racetrack there was a voice that kept repeating, "Take it easy on the car", over and over again. We use to laugh, hysterically as the voice would repeat that refrain. Till this day, it's a running gag in our house, when things are tending to be moving too fast for safety, and a big mistake looms on the horizon. "Take it easy on the car", are words of wisdom when attempting to maneuver through this heavy pea- soup stuff and our daily lives for that matter. Slow down and enjoy the trip. And by the way, the early morning fog is stunning, lighting the roadside views. Take it all in. We better enjoy this 53 number while we can. It's back into the deep freeze this weekend!
