Steam Fog

These are terms for fog that forms over water. Over salt water it's called sea smoke, over fresh water it is called steam fog.  It happens when colder air moves over warmer water.  This time of year, you can see steam fog rising from John's back bay and moving out over the lake's surface.

Recently, when we had a sudden thunderstorm with hail, steam fog formed immediately after the deluge stopped.  Even with the hail melting on the lake's surface, the air through which it passed must have cooled even more.



I love living up the lake and close to nature. You see so many interesting things. -- Margy
