Last night the TV weather guesser announced that the dew point and air temperature would be equal after midnight which would produce heavy fog by daybreak. A light came on in what’s left of my mind and I decided to set the alarm, get up early and be in place in one of my favorite perches to shoot a few dozen frames of the sun rising through the fog.
That was the plan.
Apparently the sun didn’t get the memo because we have solid overcast but I did manage a few frames like this heron perched on the dock in the stock pond.
Just after I tripped the shutter on this shot the bird took flight…..and vanished in the fog before I could get another shot.
The tree above grabbed my attention, mainly because of the three deer in the foreground. What deer? The ones that jumped the fence and vanished into the mist while I was busy stopping the truck and raising the camera.
The National Weather Service web site has a special weather statement posted warning of dense fog and visibility reduced to 1/4 mile in some areas. Locally it was down to about 25 meters in places.
Heavy rain and thunderstorms are in today’s forecast. We can use the rain because we’re still over 4 inches below average for the year but heavy rain always brings the danger of flash floods. At least the cloud cover will keep the temperature down…..for now. The weather guesser is on the tube right now saying the fog should burn off by 10:00, raising the temperature enough to trigger thunderstorms as another cold front moves into the area. Guess it’s time to find my life jacket.
That’s all I’ve got for this morning. Y’all take care out there. I’m gonna take a nap.
