Oh ffs, this happens all the time here. You can see the fog bank all day, just waiting for the sun to quit warming the shoreline, and then it rolls right in.
 
2021-12-02 2:08:13 PM  
Unless there's a giant wave involved, that's a Fog Tsunami, you alleged journalist.

I miss coastal fog a lot.  Heck, I miss the tule fog where I grew up that would not lift for days this time of year.

I miss fog, man.

tsunami fog

That is just a wrongheaded term all around.
 
2021-12-02 2:29:53 PM  
Tsunami fog - there has to be a band named that already.
 
2021-12-02 2:31:18 PM  
It probably didn't help having a siren going off to add to the panic.
 
2021-12-02 2:32:25 PM  
It's been a pain to drive around in and I really wouldn't have enjoyed being out there on a paddle board with this incoming, but we need all the water we can get out here.

I spent less than two years in the Bay Area and the fog is one of the things I miss most. Not so common in the Midwest.

F.. F.. FU.. FUH... FOG!!!!!

Zoinks!
 
2021-12-02 2:34:31 PM  
At this point having the fog bank roll in would be a welcome respite from the monotony of clear, 70-degree days we've been having in Santa Cruz. Not that I've minded too much - been getting lots of kayak time lately. But it's time for winter to start already.

It's bad enough when you have to deal with earthquakes, then the Nothing decides to show.

Good thing that Fog Siren was activated. Do you have any idea of the annual toll Fog takes on lives and property? Have you ever *seen* fog smash into a building? It's not pretty.
 
2021-12-02 2:36:47 PM  
It's not as if it rolled in all of a sudden. It was a slow ride. Take it easy.
 
2021-12-02 2:37:10 PM  
Ooo, that sounds delightful

Wow, really could've done without the siren being added to that video by some chucklefark

At least it isn't the fog that turns you inside out, amirite?

I remember that terrifying me as a kid. By far the most gory Treehouse episode.

What a gyp! Here I thought this was an actual thing when in fact it's just a typical California coast day.

How'd you like to be that one guy at the end of the video tasked with expressing "everyone's" reaction?

I don't know if I could handle that pressure.

Well, to be fair, in Australia it would probably be full of spiders.

But did it happen on tiktok yet? That is the part that matters, for some reason.

I don't think it made FARK this year, but I could've missed it:

I'm a little north of La Jolla in San Clemente. Look, fog. Behold it in all its glory.

Hi!  Welcome to the west coast.  We have fog here that comes in off the ocean on the regular.

Film at 11.

It's called the marine layer.

Clearly a lot of folks would be gobsmacked by seeing it come pouring through a pass in the SC mountains like a fluid

When we walk on the pier in town I always envision a large mass heading to shore in the distance...is it one of the Old Ones or Gozirra. Who's to say?

The ads for that movie scared the crap out of me when I was kid.

Hates California, it's cold and it's damp.

Yes, fog is now clickbait worthy.

Find the individual who thought adding the siren would make it spookier. Then beat him.

Then beat him again.

Man, we haven't had a good fog here in Seattle in AGES.

I feel cheated.

That movie was cheesy as all get out.

That's actually a haunted hound that lost its master at sea in fog like that.

My favorite fog pics, scanned from 35mm negatives.

Downtown Tulsa, 1985.

This one always reminded me of Myst. Sequoia National Forest, 1996.

Not exactly a fog pic, but the clouds were pouring through gaps in the far peaks like an avalanche. Crystal Mtn. Ski area, east of Mt. Rainier, 1991.

That phenomenon leads to some pretty bigly wind storms in down stream communities.  Enumclaw, Black Diamond, Maple Valley.... They all get whacked by air coming through the pass and blowing down trees.

Others said they would have been too spooked to stay outside to film the event, questioning Mr Aguilera's decision not to go inside.

Good lord, people are such wusses these days that they're terrified of fog?

I saw a fog bank like this roll into the Palos Verdes Peninsula many years ago while I was walking a trail along the edge of a cliff face. It slowly blanketed the ocean and the beach like the tide coming in, and rise until it nearly reached the top of the cliff.

Before my arthritis I did a lot of walking and hiking, and it's one of my favorite, most vivid memories.
