Tule Fog

January 30, 2013

Sacramento has this weather phenomenon called the Tule Fog (pronounced TOO-lee) that occurs in the wintertime.  Wintertime in Sacramento is more humid than the summertime apparently.  I’ll let you know my thoughts on that come August.  Suffice to say my morning walks with Chloe always include a winter hat.  Partly to keep me warm, and partly to protect my curls from the fog.

My neighbor clued me in on another way to combat the fog (and inevitable frost that follows when the temps drop):  The towel-on-the-windshield trick.


Demonstrated here by my neighbor’s car

She’s not the only one who uses this technique.


Hark! Another towel adherent.

So I tried it myself, and you know what?

    Thanks for the tip! (not that I drive or anything, ha ha ha) 🙂

    I have never heard of the towel trick! And I’ve lived in California all my life. Maybe it only works in Sacramento?
