It was a day with white in the air, a day of cold air, of snow and freezing fog. I walked on cleared surfaces and through deep snow, happy to be wandering in daylight.
I was curious enough to look on the National Weather Service site for a definition.
It's so good to be able to work from home on days like today; I can avoid driving on slippery roads, and I can arrange my working hours to support walking outside during daylight hours.
Freezing fog occurs when the water droplets that the fog is composed of are "supercooled". Supercooled water droplets remain in the liquid state until they come into contact with a surface upon which they can freeze. As a result, any object the freezing fog comes into contact with will become coated with ice.
