Today I want to talk about the weather. I know, shallow topic, but yesterday we had very odd weather here in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. I used to hear that if there's fog, there can't be ice, but I already knew that wasn't true. If you still think that's true, yesterday's weather will disprove that theory once and for all.
The photos I'm sharing were taken around 2pm yesterday, though they look more like a foggy morning. This was the first time I have seen fog and frost last all day. It was cold and never got very bright, a little taste of what I imagine it's like to live in the Arctic Circle in winter. Okay, I know it's nothing even close to that, but that's what it made me think of. The fog and frost just did not want to let go. Yesterday was also the first time I have set out to purposely take photos in the fog. I've seen some fabulous ones, just never thought to take any myself. These were all taken right in my neighborhood. I love how the oak tree by my kids' school (and our church) looks a bit eerie through the fog, and the frost really brings out the design of the spiderweb.
