PHX Fogopalypse !


When eucalyptus trees become ethereal

It seems prudent this morning to postpone any travel by any means in Phoenix until the sun does its work and causes the unusually dense fog we woke up to to burn off. The gray soup turns everything beautiful and mysterious, until you need to drive or bike somewhere, with others out feeling like they need to do the same, and then it becomes rather terrifying when you realize you can't see the lane markers twenty feet ahead, and taillights are merely indistinct red glows which must not be very far ahead but you can't tell. Even the morning birds are freakishly quiet now. They seem to know that the nest is best, presently.

    1. Waited until later when the super parties had started and everyone was inside. The paths were open, the sun was out, nice a quiet out there.

  2. That's pretty heavy! I wouldn't have thought that you would have to deal with fog in the desert.

    1. It's rare here, certainly, RTP. People have no idea how to drive in it.
