Yes, More Pictures

Supposedly today is the last day of the fog, as a storm system that’s headed our way will come in and break up this high pressure that has been sitting on top of us. It’ll be sad to see our old friend go. Here are a few last pictures to see it off:

Even the snow on the ground has been bitten by the pogonip. Since it’s less likely to melt here than on the trees, it’s built up over several days.

A closeup. We’re supposed to get rain this week, so all of this will be gone and just get soggy and slushy.

The afternoon sun tries to cut through the mist, only partly successful.

Chad West got a unique angle on the fog, looking down on it from Heavenly Ski Resort. Here is a thumbnail of one of his shots, looking down at Lake Tahoe completely shrouded in the stuff.

:: And reader Pam sent in this photo of pogonip in Sparks. Thanks!

    I am sad, the fog is not totally gone, yet I miss it allready. Come back soon my cold and gloomy friend.

    I have never heard of pogonip until we moved to Nevada, we’ve lived here more than ten years and this is the first year I have really seen it’s beauty. I also liked the fog this year… why are they calling this the WORST winter? I love it.
