FALMOUTH – We headed out on an afternoon walk on what seemed to be the nicest, sunniest, clearest day. But by the time we arrived at about 6 pm. at Surf Drive Beach, we were confronted with a question… where is the water?
It was amazing. The fog seemed to have rolled quickly in over the waters of Vineyard Sound. A thick line of fog hung at the horizon and then briefly hugged the shore.
We’ve seen fog on the Cape before but this kind of quickly moving thick haze was like sitting in the hills of Berkeley watching the fog roll in past the Golden Gate Bridge. It was pretty dramatic.
Mark Twain is often credited with saying, “If you don’t like the weather in New England now, just wait a few minutes.”
A brief amount of research could not exactly confirm he said this. But he did give a famous speech on the weather in New England to the New England Society in 1876 in which he said, “In the spring I have counted 136 different kinds of weather” inside of 24 hours.
Seeing how quick this happened, it’s clear he was not exaggerating.
