FOG, Nothing Romantic About Dying In it!
Fog can be romantic if you are walking hand in hand with your lover down a familiar street but there is nothing romantic about dying in a car crash because of foggy conditions.
One may be surprised at how often we have fog in Western ND in the fall but it is a pretty common occurrence. I know I was surprised when I moved out here to see such thick fog when the temperature is hovering around (above and below) the freezing mark.
This was the case this morning. A thick fog blanketed the area this morning and it lead to a multi-vehicle pile-up and the death of a high school coach on his way to work. Traffic is scary enough in the oil patch with all the extra truck traffic we have but add thick fog to it and scary turns to deadly.
I know that no matter what I say the crazy drivers are still going to drive to fast and the overly cautious will drive to slow, also causing a hazard. This is just a reminder that if you are "white knuckle driving" you may want to re-evaluate the necessity of your trip and stay home safe and warm.
Today there is a family missing their daddy, a wife missing her husband, a team missing it's coach, and a community missing a valued member of it's community.
I know there will be many more of these foggy mornings in the next month so I just want to ask you... is getting there really worth your life?
