Have you ever heard that 90 days after a fog it is supposed to storm (or rain or precipitate)?
Over the past two days we’ve had a doozy of a fog. I was in northwest Iowa both days. The fog yesterday was very dense until mid-afternoon letting up just briefly for a sunny period before setting in again. Today (January 19th) the fog wasn’t quite as dense, but it still had a definite presence. On both days, when stopping at an intersection, I had to “roll” the car windows down to listen for traffic before proceeding through the intersection.
Back to the 90 day thing…it seems like just about every time we get major precipitation, Bill reminds me that 90 days prior, we had a dense fog. Maybe it is an old wives’ tale. One TV news video * seems to report that there really isn’t any truth to the 90-day saying. However, it will be interesting to make note of the weather around Arpil 18 and 19 (90 days from yesterday and today) to see if the saying holds true.
