The last two or three days have been alternately drippy and cold; Thursday we had the rare Bay Area day during which the temperatures never got out of the mid-40s. It drizzled and misted all day today until after dark. Then fog billowed in off the bay; this kind of fog — dense, hugging the ground, is sort of rare here; what locals call fog is usually a dense layer of low clouds that blows in off the Pacific, through the Golden Gate, during late summer afternoons, creating a dense, dark gray overcast and swirling over the tops of the hills but never reaching the ground in the flatlands.
