Carson City Fog

Crossposted from Around Carson.

It’s far too seldom that fog rolls into Carson City. I wish it would happen more often, but it usually seems like it’s only in January that we get any kind of serious fog to speak of. This weekend we’ve been treated to some great soupy fog both Saturday and Sunday mornings, stuff that just rolls in and wraps itself around all the buildings in town. Of course it’s been burning off later in the day, and it looks like the weather systems are going to change next week to bring in more of a real storm. But it has given us two fantastic mornings so far. The only thing missing is the pogonip that comes when you combine fog like this with low temperature; the temps in the morning have been hovering in the 30s, a little too warm for true pogonip to form. 2005 brought us some excellent pogonip; go back and look at those pictures.

But back to the present; here are a few looks around town from the fog this weekend.
