Fog Blog

Freezing fog has been the norm for the past few days, but come the weekend the fog will be gone ~ blown away, actually by a roaring wind coming via an arctic front ~ and snow flurries. Oh, joy! I'm taking Nikki's idea of a filtered front window and bring some blue California sky to my world.


Work continues to keep me busy. I'm feeling much more at home there, however with the longer day, I find that I'm still in transition mode. Once the weather improves, I hope to walk to work which is something I'm looking forward to. In the meantime, I'm just glad it's a short drive.


  1. I don't like freezing fog at all! Mind you your weekend may not be much better.
    Good to see that you're now feeling at home in the new job. As you say it'll be nice when you can walk there and back in warmer, sunnier weather.
    Have a good weekend! xx

  2. Ah, what a lovely view, Glo! Glad you received that blue-skied-California-sun I sent :-) But when it snows, I'm glad you have only a short drive.

  3. Ooh, I bet freezing fog cracks a lot of trees and powerlines.

    Very clever transition to the palm tree :)

  4. Glo you have made the snowy view look most romantic and indeed very pretty. hehe
    I know it's never easy to make the transition from one post to another, but I'm sure you are already part of the furniture. The type that makes a place a whole lot better.
    Don't forget to find a little 'glo' time.

  5. Hi Flighty ~ at last a reply! It's good that the freezing fog has gone, although it is still freezing! With the lighter mornings, it shouldn't be too long before I try the walk to work ~ and of course, back!

    Nikki ~ Thanks for the California sun Nikki ~ it was lovely to imagine it! Visualization is helpful! I clocked the drive to work and it is barely 2 km, so about 1 mile. I'll have to get a pedometer and see how many steps I take :)

    Liz ~ Yes, it was nasty freezing fog! However, luckily over the winter so far, we have only lost power once, and had some flickerings, otherwise with the snow and fog we would have been in much worse shape if powerless. In fact, it doesn't bare thinking about ;)

    Hi Daffy ~ It's funny you should say I'm part of the furniture ~ because one of the first things that happened was moving the huge desk out of the middle of the office. Now everyone comes in and stands gawking because it is so empty...hehe, and I'm tucked happily in the corner with a window to the hallway and long counters on each side. (I did like the Cappuccino bar they put in one day though ~ right where the desk was!
