Foggy Cape Cod Bloggy
So often, here on Cape Cod, it's hard to know what the day will be like. Some mornings, the fog from the ocean will hang on, pulling back gently to tease with just a bit of sun, a small glimpse of blue sky, and, just as you've decided, "Oh, it's going to rain," or "Oh, there's the sun," changing yet again.
The first time my cousin Janice and her husband Patrick came here to visit me, I worried every morning about the weather. I wanted everything to be perfect for their vacation here. And, every morning, the fog would drift away as they pulled out of the driveway for another one of their Cape Cod adventures (more on those in the future, I promise).
This August morning, as I sip my coffee, I wonder whether I should close the windows before I head off to the Outer Cape. Some mornings, the sun will break through before I leave, but as I drive towards Skaket Harbor on the Mid-Cape Highway, I can see the eastern end of the sky in front on me enveloped in dense clouds and mists. No matter...by the time I'm opening the blinds in my office, the sun may well be shining.
