I wish I had the time to break out the drone this morning as there really wasn’t much in the way of fog until I got close to the office and then I could easily tell that while it was clear here at the office in Foscoe, there was a very thick blanket of fog at Hound Ears and Valle Crucis. If I could have flown the drone and gotten up around 300′ or so above that cloud bank, it would have been something like this:

I’ve flown the drone many times where it was a blank white screen until it rose above the fog bank. Click to Enlarge!
