In a Fog

DMS students have a science assignment to get outside and do some star watching this week, so I'm not surprised that it's been foggy most nights. That's Murphy's Law. Fog doesn't look like much from the inside, but it can be very beautiful from above, like a swirling, fluffy blanket pulled up tight over the valley. I drive from my home in the mountains down into the fog every morning on my way to school. It usually starts suddenly, like a wall. Fog and clouds are just water vapor, so why do they have such sharp edges?
