And I thought it was COLD yesterday !!!

This morning.....22 below zero at 7:30 a.m. Driving by the Fore River inlet from the ocean I noticed an eerie mist mulling around backlit by the morning sun. The water was around 30 degrees, I'm told, and the air so very much below zero that the water, in comparison, was downright balmy. I turned around and took this photo.

This phenomenon is called Arctic Sea Smoke and yes, it was. (eskip photo in the link)
