I love mist and fog. I love the way it softens everything, lurks in hollows, swirls around at the slightest breeze and generally makes walking the dogs feel like an episode of Scooby Doo. The dogs love it too, as the mist seems to amplify the smells. making each corner a real sniff-fest.
When I am cycling I also like the way it causes all but the most psychotic drivers to go a bit slower and drive with a little more care than usual. It was with a little smug satisfaction that I saw that one of these had missed the road slightly this morning, and was sitting with both of his left wheels in a ditch, unable to go anywhere...
