Beautiful.

I got to the school I was working at today and stepped out of the car.

The fog was dense and muffled the sound of my feet on the icy sidewalk. The haze softened all edges and anything more than 20 ft away blurred into obscurity. The cold dampness cut through my winter jacket and clutched icy fingers around my bones as I looked around the abandoned street. In the eerie stillness, every leaf, every branch, every tree, every bush was coated with white crystals; the fog had brushed against them, painting them with dampness in the freezing air, repeating again and again with endless patience until every leaf, every twig wore a white shroud. I have never been in a more ghostly landscape.

I am so using that image in the next RPG I run.

On a related note, we haven't seen the sun in more than a week in Delta. We have been fogged in, completely, the entire time. Sun can come back any time now... while I'm not particularly dependent on sunshine, the mood boost that comes with the rarity of a sunny winter day wouldn't go amiss right now.

Also... two weeks to the reopening of the Patello bridge is much, much better than 4-6 weeks. While I can avoid the Alex Fraser, which is taking the worst of the over-flow traffic, it takes me an extra 1/2 hour each way to commute right now. :-P Yuck. Who knew the Patello had wooden support beams? Crazy. Damn major commuter bridges catching on fire...
