Under the Weather

I've declared today to be movies and pajamas day; ^J^ is super-sick, *A* has her cough, we've been on Spring Break with busy schedules, and we have the thickest fog I've ever seen in almost 3 years. In Sewanee, the fog is famous. We have shirts with "Fog Happens" written on them. When I mentioned the fog this morning to (H), he reminded me that it's really the inside of a cloud. I guess he's been paying attention. The reason we have such thick fog is because we're so high above everything else, so we end up actually being in the clouds. It's probably raining down the mountain, but here we're just getting the cold dampness of the cloud. Some people hate it, it does put a weird white haze on the world and it's pretty much impossible to drive in, but I think it's great. Especially if we don't have to go anywhere. I'm really going to miss the fog when we leave.

Sorry for the words-only post, I have lots of pictures to share from Spring Break and whatnot, but I'm not motivated to get them downloaded right now. Maybe later today I'll get to it. Or maybe not.

We're all perfectly content snuggling under the blanket, eating chocolate chip pancakes, and watching old movies. I think The Sound of Music is in order today, and maybe Singing in the Rain since it's done nothing but storm for the past 2 days. But for today we'll enjoy being wrapped in the cloud and avoid the rest of the world (since we can't see it anyway).
