    Yes Marty, purr-fect comments today! Glad you are making an apurr-ance for all those purr-sistent tourists who purr-sue you and try to pet you and make me purr-form. You are the summit mascot after all. And your fans adore you. >^..^<

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    Default Not sure I follow today's comment

    With respect to today's comment about clouds/fog:

    Not sure I really agree that there is some fundamental difference between fog and cloud. Furthermore I don't really follow what the argument is for there being a difference. Seems like the comment suggests that the forcing for the microphysical processes that generate hydrometeors (e.g. cloud droplets), must come from the surface? But again I don't really follow that...
    To me that just makes it a boundary layer cloud. After all the forcing for fair weather cumulus arises as thermals from the surface...
    Why is it not sufficient to simply say that a cloud occurring at the surface is called fog? Which is after all an arbitrary and semantic distinction. Is there truly something special about fog?

    Discuss.

    I get your point that fog is basically a low cloud and that is more or less how I have looked at it for years. I think the comment was more about teaching you the specifics about what fog actually is, the different forms of it, and how it comes to be made (not just a cloud that that blew down to a lower level).

    Hi RK
    Nice contrast photo "winter weather on the higher summits and fall weather in the valleys"...
    I also like how you smoothly referenced the KR 5 Stages...I think I went through all 5 today myself
