The fog has definitely rolled into mid-Michigan this evening. I can feel a dampness in the air as the weather slowly warms above freezing. Depending on the news outlet, we will receive between 5 to 10 inches of snow within the next two days. I am wondering if the dense fog is just the prelude to the coming snow storm. I know there is an old weather tale that states, ““For every fog in August, there will be a snowfall.” But I do not know if the fog actually is an indicator of an upcoming snow storm.
Michigan has seen a mild winter so far. A really good snow storm is just a matter of time. I guess, we will find out tonight. The snow is reported to begin after 1 a.m. I have nowhere to go for the next couple of days. I can just spend extra time working on my book. And, of course, go out and take pictures of the newly fallen snow.
Until next time…..peace.
P.S. A special shout out to my father who celebrates his 70th birthday today.
The weather almost reached 50˚F this afternoon. Definitely a rarity for December in Michigan, the temperatures are supposed to slowly drop tomorrow as rain begins to move in. But we may actually have a little snow on Christmas Day, just enough to cover the ground. We will see if I get my white Christmas or not.
I originally went outdoors to photograph some birds. My feeders were being overrun with Sparrows, Titmouses, and Black Capped Chickadees. I love these diminutive birds; they seem to “chirp” at me when I just step out the door. Trust me; they are all very vocal when the feeders are low.
After a while, my attention turned to the clouds. They were just beautiful. One person on my Facebook page describes the clouds as a “stairway to heaven.” The stunning array was a perfect setting as the sun slowly began to sink below the tree lines.
As soon as the sun started to set, the fog began to roll in….sounds like a good beginning for a book.
The sun was already beginning to set in the above photo, but the clouds were still gorgeous.
The fog rolled across the field, I actually watched the mist cover the ground. I found the experience fascinating.
The sun was setting, but the fog just covered the bottom of the ground.
I am sure there are better more scientific words to describe the fog, the clouds and the sun. But I just like photographing the natural world around me.
