Smog generally refers to smoke and fog. You combine the two words and smog works best. Smog is the only word to describe a recent morning in Woodlawn. We had been smelling something really awful all night and into the morning when it dawned on me the smoky smell was from Mr. C's tobacco barn. You could feel it in the air and see it everywhere. The smog is not a pleasant smell, though I guess it could be described as a pleasant picture. The mistiness can remind one of foggy mornings in the mountains, or of socked in valleys in California. Your choice.
Normally the smell of tobacco smoke would not be a big deal. This particular morning the smog hung heavy because the air was so still and the dewpoint and temperature were very close together, setting up the right conditions for this tobacco smoke smog to invade all areas of the home and garden. The cows don't seem to mind it though. They are busy giving birth to many calves. It is such a joy watching these babies romp, smog or not I am glad to have a farmer as a neighbor.
in the garden....
Don't forget to tune in tomorrow for a rip roaring belly laugh to start off a good weekend.
