|HAUSER'S APPLE ORCHARDS ON HWY. J...|
|...AS THE FOG ROLLS IN|
Monday, 8:30 AM. 34 degrees F at the ferry dock, 29 on the back porch. Wind WNW, with occasional light gusts. The sky is overcast but there are a few small windows in the gloom that give a faint hope of sunshine. The humidity is 85% and the barometer is falling, now at 29.85" of mercury. The forecast is for more of the same, ad nauseum.
After church yesterday morning we took a ride, as we often do, through the orchard country on Hwy. J. The orchards are mostly on the high bluffs west of Bayfield and thus are at significantly greater elevation than the little city.
Weather conditions are usually quite different at the top of the bluffs than in town, and yesterday was no exception, there being several inches of new snow and much heavy fog, which seemed to creep up from the waters of the Bay to find a place to reside at the top; halfway up Cemetery Hill is where the weather usually changes.
The fog comes
on little cat feet.
It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
