Last night we experienced here in Spokane a phenomenon I don't recall seeing anywhere else I've lived: freezing fog. It gets foggy and then, yup, the temperature falls below freezing and the fog freezes on everything it touches. Which is everything, including the lovely twigs of bushes and trees and the needles on the pines. And the windshield of the Volvo and the sidewalk.
It's lovely but treacherous, like so many other things in life. I tiptoed across the icy driveway this morning (I'm leery of falling again before I even get the hardware out of my head from the last tumble) and took the above photo of the bushes in our side yard.
Here's a photo of the bushes a week ago.
Clearly, I need to get me a book about how to take pictures. Does anybody have any suggestions?
