London Fog

os Angeles is shrouded in a large cloud right now. It is beautiful and something I've not really seen before. I just finished tutoring, and as I  walked out of my student's home, I was so struck by the air that was so still and misty. As I made my way to my car, I noticed the old fashioned streetlights were casting dimly lit spots on the pavement, but their light also caught in the cloud and gave the appearance of a yellow ball. It was eerie and awesome at the same time. I felt like I was in "Jack the Ripper" (God forbid), an Agatha Christie, or a Hitchcock film. Needless to say, I love this weather. It's certainly been unusual this season. To begin with, the leaves on the trees changed. That hasn't happened in my 18 years of living here. Maybe the world is coming to an end. Or maybe we just had a cold snap. Either way, keep it comin!
