Charleston under valley fog

Taking a break from the snow forecast post for some overnight valley fog, viewed from up on the ridge behind the house tonight. The whole mass of clouds was flowing down the valley and changing shapes, if I have time later I'll assemble some frame sequence animations. If I can get myself out of bed early enough I'll have some sunrise versions of these later. (EDIT: I woke up at sunrise to find that the fog had thinned considerably. So no daylight pictures this time.)

The tower with white lights on the right is the WVAH mast, the one I frequent for tower lightning - viewed here from 18 miles away:

Thanks Dann, this only happens a few times a year - it takes a delicate balance of dewpoints and valley/ridge temperature differences to get it.
