Wall of Fog

July 25, 2009

Here we see our very own Fog-Mauer hovering over 280, protecting us from any sunny interlopers that might sneak up from the peninsula.

And get ready for more — the warmer it gets in the rest of the bay, the foggier it will get in San Francisco.

    Are you sure that’s not just the ventilation exhaling from Mr. Nice Guy?

    I love the Towering Wall o’ Fog. On good days, it’s a truly terrifying presence, making me glad it’s very thinly-dispersed water droplets instead of, you know, water water. Cuz that would suck.

    But what’s a ‘mauer’?

    Mauer = Wall in German, aka Die Berliner Mauer. (Fog in German is Nebel, and I think ,,Nebel-Mauer” is a pretty awesome word, especially when you put crazy German quotation marks around it. (And the word for quotation marks is pretty damn awesome too. Anführungszeichen! But, unsurprisingly, I digress.))

    Anyway, 6 years of rain in Vancouver and 6 years of terrifying tornado-bearing thunderstorms and hurricanes in VA and SC taught me that fog is really not something worth bitching about, especially when it provides a lovely 40 degree delta from the sweltering South Bay. Plus watching it spill through the Islais Gap and around Twin Peaks is pretty damn impressive.

    These fog time lapses from Sausalito are amazing.

    Though I’d really love a telephoto lens on top of Mount Diablo showing Twin Peaks and Sutro Tower defending the Mission.
