We have ice fogs here in Georgia every now and then, and I remember them once or twice at my grandparent's farm in Wisconsin. They were only a couple of miles from Lake Michigan and sometimes the ground would be cold but the lake was still open and the fog would roll in.

This is the first year I heard news folks using the word, ice fog. Basically it is an intense fog with limited to no visibility. But it sticks- forms ice- on everything. It is terrible to drive in, but looks very pretty on the trees (if you are close enough to see them in the fog) and when the fog first starts to lift. Every branch/twig has a very thin ice coating.. of course, the roads
and every structure has it on there too...

But it is weird to explain. It doesn't rain or like everything was wet and
ice formed.... the fog basically froze to cause the ice.

I am sure it is common somewhere... but not here before this year.
