It was foggy this morning, with the air 100 percent saturated and condensation forming jewel droplets on twigs. A close-up look revealed the world upside down and backwards in the silver orbs. Fog drops hung until accumulating water grew too heavy for adhesion, when the droplets would fall and the process would continue. Until the breeze sprang up, these quicksilver ornaments decorated the landscape.
Fog is formed when tiny water droplets condense in heavy air near the earth’s surface. Technically, it’s not fog unless visibility is reduced to less than 5/8 mile. If you can see through it farther than that, it’s technically mist.
That was the case today, making it easier for things like drivers and geese to see their way to destinations on a winter morning.
