Fog

Foggy-Malibu-Pier

Today’s Daily Prompt, Image Search brought to mind my dislike of fog.

In the Central Valley of Northern California, the fog in January is legendary. The endless weeks of fog, which is cold and blocks out the sun for days on end, can cause many to suffer from a condition called Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD. This condition leads to depression and other symptoms if not treated with sunlight.

According to the NOAA website, radiation fog forms at night under clear skies with calm winds when heat absorbed by the earth’s surface during the day is radiated into space. As the earth’s surface continues to cool, provided a deep enough layer of moist air is present near the ground, the humidity will reach 100% and fog will form. Radiation fog varies in depth from 3 feet to about 1,000 feet and is always found at ground level and usually remains stationary.

This describes the type of fog that we get in Sacramento. I dislike it so much that the ethereal images of fog that I show here is the type of fog I would rather see.

  1. Nice description on fog. I get it here in San Diego in the morning but it goes away when the sun comes out. Do you ever get this kind of fog?

  2. Here we have freezing fog. It’s beautiful and dangerous. It makes the trees into something magic, and the sidewalks into something sinister.
