The Huron Valley is under a dense fog advisory until 6am

So that stuff you are seeing is FOG. No need to worry, no need to panic, once again, that's FOG.

Did ya know then, in most all driving simulators drivers facing heavy simulated fog tend to speed up. WAY up. Extrapolate (yes, 10¢ word) that out to real life conditions and maybe we can see why so many bad accidents happen in fog. Not just the blind driving but the higher speed.

Bad. But not as bad as the Great Smog of 1952 (which I recently learned of).
