Just as I was finishing afternoon chores I noticed the temp was dropping fast and the air was becoming heavy with moisture. Yep, "THERE IS A FOG BANK OUT THERE" - could not help it I really do love that movie.
It seemed with each step it moved closer and closer to me and the house. I was trying to finish up with the hens before the eerie fog could reach me.. The animals became restless and the dogs started barking. If I believed that there is something lurking in the fog I would have moved my rear a lot faster but with the snow drifts in front of the coop all I was trying to do was not fall on my face.
As I got into the safety of the house I noticed faint outlines in the distant fog - my mind started to race but with a couple of blinks of my very tired eyes I could see it was the deer running towards the forest to get into the night time resting spots before the sun went down.
From the safety of my living room window I watched as the giant pines became engulfed in the fog. With the dogs still barking I knew it was going to be a very interesting night watch - I sure do hope there are no Leper Ghosts out there waiting to sink a hook into my chest when I step outside the shop door tonight to check on the animals. Oh Well, if by chance that does happen - Be Warned.. There is Something Strange in the Mist - wait, that is a different movie. Either way, RUN!!!
