Ice Fog, Passing Through

So we had temps in the low single-digits in Anchorage this afternoon when a heavy fog rolled in, across, and on out.

What did it leave behind?

Truck antenna

Tree branches and all solid objects

Makes everything look almost like it snowed again.

When we were in northern British Columbia, just a few miles from the Yukon Territory, there was an ice fog with temps around -14 F. That was in early October, that year. The ice build-up on the truck antenna formed large crystals like that old school experiment where you suspend a string in concentrated sugar water. The antenna looked like someone had glued small ice cubes all over it.

Well just so you know I'm debating turning on the A/C tonight, just a tad warm here! :-)

Mike, I have no envy for anyplace that's too warm, even if you're kidding. We like the cold weather too much. ;^)

TB, yes it is. :)

NFO, it made the streets in Anchorage pretty slick, but the highway was okay once out of town.

Linda, it did indeed.
