I love the way a layer of fog comes down and rests across the hollow between hills of a morning…….

    It looks lovely. I lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for 7 years long ago – I loved watching the fog roll in and tumble down the hills!!

    Isn’t country living wonderful? There’s no place I’d rather be than right here in the hills of PA with my family and my “mini” farm of chickens. That’s the good life!

    I noticed that as we were driving thru WV last week on our way to NC…it was very pretty! as long as it did not interfere with my driving!! I wondered if it often was a heavier fog and caused school delays… beautiful country tho!

    Beautiful! That’s how I need to describe the ravine behind the house…….hollow between the hills, with a creek at the bottom! Much nicer description!

    “The fog comes
    on little cat feet.

    It sits looking
    over harbor and city
    on silent haunches
    and then moves on.”

    ~Carl Sandburg

    He would have written “…over hill and vale…” had he ever been to West Virginia.

    I love the fog too :clover:

    One year we vacationed in the Shenandoah mountains and enjoyed seeing the fog in the valley below. Beautiful country!

    We had lots of fog this morning but it has vanished now. It always looks so mysterious.

    I love when that happens. Everything is greening up in your part of the country. Looks wonderful.

    How timely. Just yesterday I was remembering the ground fog that rose in late afternoon across the highway down in the fields of river bottom when I was growing up on the farm.

    “Of a morning” is an old mountain saying. Did you learn that here, Suzanne, or did you always use that term?

    Betty, I just like it because it’s quaint. I probably picked it up from books. (I was a lit major.)

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either.
