Tule Fog - People Don't Believe Me.

Post by Scott Whitney » Sun Sep 15, 2019 4:16 pm

The local radio station said be careful driving because it was a foggy morning. I looked out the window and could see almost half a mile. Fog? Not hardly.

In Fresno I got off work at 10 PM and drove from the South end of town to Clovis. On foggy evenings I had to stick my head out the window to see the lines on the street. Many evenings you couldn't see the traffic lights, even though you knew where they were. (roll down the windows, turn off the ignition, listen for the absence of other cars and gun it)

One evening before leaving work we used a tape measure. We could only see 11 feet! Oddly if you looked up, you could see the stars. When I tell people here, they don't believe me.

True story: Shortly before we moved away there was a house fire on a very foggy evening. The house was a short distance back from a busy street. They didn't discover the burned out house until a day later when the fog cleared.
