We didn't mean to be driving in something like this. The morning forecast before we left said starting to clear around noon, fog advisory expires at noon. It opened at noon, we should be OK. They changed the forecast after we left, I guess, but we didn't know. More fog.
As we carefully drove home, hands on wheel, at attention, lights on, slow enough to stop in what we could see, spaced back, quiet, all focus on the wall of white - vehicles zipped past us at full speed (65mph). Drivers talking on cell phones. NO headlights. Eating. Not using blinkers to pass. Tailing each other at less than one car length - car 1, car 2, car 3, car 4, car 5, all so close (too close!) quickly disappearing one after another into the fog.
It was scary to see that something this horrific happened close to home at the very same time.
I was so relieved to arrive home safely with my two little beautiful boys and my husband.
