We had a cold snap, but the days have been perfect. There is always a lot of dew in the morning, and it's cool, but this morning when I walked the dogs there was a strange atmospheric phenomenon that I don't know how to name. It might be either a fog or a very low cloud. The air was perfectly clear on the surface, but about 12 to 15 feet up it got foggy, so that you could look down the street and see cars and houses clearly, but just a few feet above them the trees grayed out fairly quickly.
We went a little less than two miles, and as we came home the sun was just coming up, and the cloud was nearly gone. Now the sun is bright and the weather is fine.
Annie and Jerzy are gone to an emergency dentist - Jerzy had a toothache that kept him from sleeping last night. The BW got on her recumbent and took off to take the trail south to her favorite Publix, which is about three miles one way with an overpass over Alt. 19 that is a very steep hill. She has her cell phone (turned of) and mine is in my pocket turned on, so I assume she will call for help if she needs it.
Annie says there is a new brewpub on Main Street in Dunedin, so we may stop by this afternoon to warm up for supper, if Jerzy survives the dentist.
