My hubby loved to take oir wo toddlers with ys to celebrate the various hikudays He said they learned niot to misbehave when in public, The were really two go od little kids, The fog was the worst ever so we drove very slowly. When we arrived at' the theater we wer disappointed to learn that the movie was restricted, adults ojly.,My jubby saidi tf kids cant se it, its notfor us ajyway, So we foud a good restaurant and had a lovley diner Loing Beac has siome wodeful restaurants, ' B te time we got back home the fog lifted ujst as we got to our 'home town, Both ids wee asleep so we puit the to bed , We turned o n te Bto DickC;arl NewYears on Tim,e square and we watched the ball drop to signify Midnight and the New Year Webph declared haat was he best New Years eve wead spent I remember how petrified we felt to learm we had driven on he center of the road all the way in the fog We were so colicky niot to have had a head on collison One orginal post and g graphic by P Hatley copyrighted 2018

Very dense fog nearly had us over the edge of a high cliff too once coming back from seeing somebody sing in a Disco thing ages ago. When I saw how close we were to the edge of the cliff heart was in my throat and I told him quick go further in we are right on the edge. Fog was very very dense very bad. So lucky also that we did not go over the cliff.

@Hatley Yes any area when you cannot see because of the fog is really scary and we were just so lucky to escape a near bad accident. You were very lucky too not being able to see where you were going properly to get out safe and sound.

Glad it all turned out well that night in spite of the dense fog. It is scary driving in those conditions.

Fog can be very scary. I enjoy looking out on it and watching it thicken late in the night. But I don't care to be out in it.
