70mph-fog

In California they don’t even start to slow down until you can’t see 3 lines in front of you.

    In California the insurance is very high. For good reason.

    I’m above the fog and think of the people in the valley when it gets socked in for weeks at a time. Even if you can drive 70, it’s still depressing.

      Which mountain range? I’m in the San Bernardinos.

      • Elmo says:

        North central Sierra near Grass Valley. House is at 1900 feet, just right for keeping out of the fog.
        Seems like some of the prettiest fall and winter days here is when it’s socked in down below.

    I came over the Golden Gate one time into Marian County and the fog was so thick(or so I thought) that I was crawling along at about 5-10 mph. Out of nowhere a fucking school bus roars down the road coming the other way. Scared the crap out of us.

    Yeah, nothing like the coastal fogs where you couldn’t see your feet. Ground guides or shut down.

    We ended up fog in Newfoundland once that even with fog lights, it was just a glow in front. We couldn’t even see the hood of the SUV. Dad had to open his door and look down to see the dotted line to creep our way out that hole. That was when I understood what London pea-soup fogs must’very been back when most everything burned coal. Thank God it wasn’the California. Rural Newfies (and rural Canucks in general) have a great deal of good sense.

      I come from Newfoundland and you are right. You have to experience it to believe it .BTW, Newfie is a pejorative term even though Millennials think it is a loving term. It sprang from the Canadian Navy during the second great unpleasantness when visiting sailors thought Rural Newfoundlanders were a bunch of hicks. Newfoundland was a sovereign country at the time and became part of Canada on April Fools Day 1949. We were Shanghaied.

Play nice.
