We had very thick fog, drizzle and 34° this morning. It's lifting a bit now, but the fog made for some interesting driving conditions earlier.
But as the sunrise rolled around, some 25 minutes ago, the temperature fell back to 32°, so the condensation is freezing on the cars again.
I'm about done with this warm weather. Would all y'all mind sending the cold stuff back this way, please?

And December 7, 1941: don't forget this date, please. We dare not forget what happened when Japan bombed our sailors at Pearl Harbor - nor how close they came to beating us on that day, if only our carriers had been present. Thank God (literally) they were elsewhere at the time.
On our recent trip to Honolulu, we shared a shuttle with a young mother (and her two kids) from Canada.
The shuttle had a video of local attractions playing, and she asked "What's that?" when the Arizona Memorial was displayed. I told her of the attack on Pearl Harbor, and what happened to the Arizona. She'd heard of Pearl Harbor, but not much else.
The driver told us, as we disembarked, "I'd have answered her, but you were doing such a good job that I didn't want to interrupt you. You must have been here before." It made me sad to think that people have to go see it, to learn about it. It used to be taught in schools.
We're visiting Pearl again in March, where I hope to once again speak with - and thank - survivors of that attack. It's a humbling experience.
