The Old Farmer’s Almanac published a story this week that talked about folklore used to predict snow. A new one to me is that for every fog in August there will be a snowfall in winter.
Since I like both fog and snow, that sounds like a fair deal.
Incidentally, yesterday was foggy.
Here’s a look at the view from my front porch after it had started to move out. That old tree makes me happy.
And here’s one of several webs in a shrub near my bedroom window. Someone had been busy.
I suppose I’m an odd duck for paying attention to these things. Most people hate fog and wouldn’t dream of stopping to examine a spider web. But I think it’s fascinating to consider how our world changes when we aren’t looking. Light and darkness temporarily change the look of the world. Fog rolls in and softens the look of trees and roads. It dissipates and reveals the stunning handiwork of a tiny creature with eight legs. How do they make these things so beautiful anyway?
It’s all pretty wondrous if you stop and consider it.
Want to read that story? Here it is! Maybe you’ll learn something new as well!!
Lovely photos 🙂 I like the folklore, we get a lot of fog here being fairly close to the Solway coast so I will pay attention and see if the snow corresponds on winter!
Also I don’t think it’s weird at all to pay attention to little things like spider webs and fog – if anything it’s weird that more people don’t!
Hi Kaylin! Welcome to my blog! The Solway Coast? So you’re in the UK?
I bet you do have a lot of fog.
I also plan to pay attention to the fog and snow. It will be a fun little experiment! It actually bothers me to see people habitually walk past these things. How can you not stop to admire a butterfly in flight or the handiwork of a bird’s nest? But it happens so often that I sometimes feel like the oddball! Haha!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope to hear from you again!
I’m not even sure how people can walk past these things, I can’t not pay attention to them! I will definitely stop by again in the future 🙂
And why would you want to miss out on life’s beauty?
Beautiful pictures – I can get on board with the fog but it’s a bit early for me to start thinking about snow! 🙂
Lol. It’s never too early to think about snow!!! Winter is coming…..
Shhhhhh!!!! 🙂 🙂
