Temperature and Dew Point Converge into Fog

Fog in the Trees

Did you notice the fog this morning? Fog is really cool to me.  It doesn’t happen all that often but usually occurs when the relative humidity comes close to 100%, is more commonly around the 40° temp range and happens when the temperature and dew point converge within about 4° of each other.  If you were in the southeast area of Alabama we had a wonderful blanket of fog covering the area last night and this morning.  For those of us who love the humidity, especially in the winter, breathing the thick air is great.

It did add one more weather image to my tree portfolio (see below) but it got me thinking about what other things in our lives can converge to make something rare, unique, perhaps fleeting, and burns off and disappears when hit by a little heat?  That may be a little too philosophical for this time in the morning but there are many things that change molecular structure when heat is applied, including our own lives.  How often do we change our mind, our convictions, our principles, and forget things we have learned when a little heat is applied then all those things just evaporate?  Hopefully not to often.
