Oh my goodness!! That's not rain you see in the flashlight beam this morning, nor is it snow. It's fog like we haven't seen around here in decades. It's also a chilly 38 degrees and my heaters are working overtime!!
In the old days when it rained much more than now, we had what we call tulle (tullee) fog. It was so thick you could barely see the road beneath your feet, let alone the center white line when driving. Nowadays it's painted yellow to see better.
When we had to drive in the fog, you rolled down your window so you could hear other cars coming, then stuck your head out so you could follow the line. Driving 170 miles like that to Bakersfield every Christmas to my cousins house was quite the trial. People nowadays don't have a clue what it's like to drive in REAL fog.
