A slight change in weather brought fog to the farm and surrounding landscape. Little change in temperature though. Introducing fog to freezing air changes the face of the landscape. Not so much a new face, but more like your grandfather going a few days without shaving. Vegetation is as it was a few days ago but now ice particle upon ice particle have highlighted contours bringing out character unnoticed before. An ever so slight breeze keeps the windward face open while ice encases the remainder like a hood with strings tightened around the face. Ice accumulates and flows to the leeward, giving the one rooted in place the appearance of movement. Frigid, closed in, fog filled mornings brings about a certain gracefulness.
