This morning was very foggy for the area. I took my drone out to get some shots. First, looking down from 400ft:
And then when I finally got above the inversion, here's what it looked like above the fog at 1100ft:
Temps were cool this morning, before the fog burned off. But once it did, we hit the low 60s for the third time in four days. And this will be the first of many 60+ days. So it's not a surprise that this record was broken ...
