Rain and some warm weather have kicked in the fog machine around here. From early morning to late evening, yesterday was a foggy-bottom day. When it gets like this early, it can make for some tricky driving. I pulled over on the way to work to capture part of this favorite tree. I hear that London, famous for its fogs, can have them with brown or yellow-green tints. Never seen those in these parts. However, I do love to watch an Arthur Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes movie, featuring Basil Rathbone attempting to maneuver those murky, fog-bound streets on London though. Living on Coyle Street in those high school and college years at the foot of Back Bay, there were many days that the 'pea soup' fog just seemed to roll up the the driveway and consume us all, like some white-haired monster from the deep. On those days, I can remember, it really was hard to see the proverbial hand in front of your face. That reminds me, I love pea soup with big chunks of ham! Hey, how did I get here?
