Pea Soup

We've had so much rain in East Tennessee that TVA is releasing water through the dams above our piece of the Tennessee River, and the colder released water creates a thick fog bank on the river's main channel. The fog is so dense, in fact, that the geese won't fly through it, but swoop down to land at the fog's edge, honking and plainly bewildered.

It's about the only time I feel sorry for the geese, who are otherwise a complete nuisance.

The fog eventually creeps over from the main channel to engulf our house, then the road. We can hear boats moving in the channel, but can't actually see them.

It's pea soup time.
