Singleton Arctic Smoke

It was clear overnight with a beautiful full moon. The air was the coldest just at dawn and that was when the Arctic sea smoke really started to boil off the waters of Singleton Lake. I don't expect to be swimming anymore. Each wisp of Arctic sea smoke takes heat from the water. Banks of fog formed and soon it was completely overcast with stratus. Cool northeasterly drainage breezes kept the Arctic sea smoke churning until almost 11 am. I got a late start and the sky started to change before I wanted it to. By early afternoon the fog was gone and replaced with fair weather cumulus clouds - a beautiful day!
The geese provided the sound track again. The fall migrations has started.
