The weather forecaster tell us the weekend will be better…maybe even some sun. But in the meantime we have been left with fog. Fog that lingers all day creeping damp cold into all the bones.
Fog does have one benefit…it smothers most of the sounds of daily life. Distant rumbles of traffic are no more, the sound of planes heading north and south pass silently. But very strangely the sound of the birds across the woods seemed amplified…. and no its not my imagination that bird song sounds very much like the song of Spring.
So until that promised sunshine arrives we just have to enjoy the ghostly skeletons in the wet clouds….
And as dusk falls the fog just gets thicker
