OMG SO MUCH FOG

This is where I’d write something about this photo, if I had anything to say about it, but I don’t.

Underpass

I-95 in the fog. Ooooo, creepy.

Fog is pretty!

About halfway through yesterday’s morning commute, I put down my book and stared out the window.

I didn’t see much. The fog was pretty dense, and visibility was maybe 100 yards. Barely anything I could take a picture of, if I’d wanted to.

We were lucky enough to pause directly under I-95. It’s one of my favorite scenes from NJ Transit anyway (I have low standards), but it looks awesome in fog.

Treetops

Treetops, yes.

Sometimes ya just need to look up at some treetops.

Ponies in fog

Horses in fog. Well, maybe that guy/gal is a pony, I dunno.

Something about the line “ponies in fog” reminds me of Flight of the Conchords’ “Bowie’s in Space.” And I s’pose it also carries hints of “Snakes on a Plane.” All very straightforward titles, yet somehow creative in their uncreativity, no? Well maybe not “ponies in fog,” that one’s just a cop-out.

Regardless, here are some ponies in fog. (Or probably horses in fog, actually.)

Sometimes all the right elements just come together, and all you can do is watch the results.

Through the mist

Fog!

There was beautiful fog everywhere today. And it lasted ’til about 1:00PM, which is unusual for morning fog.

High Point Monument

High Point Monument in the fog... with bikers.

Ugh. Awful weather today. Apparently it’s a nor’easter.

Speaking of bad weather, how ’bout fog?

Here’s a photo of High Point Monument when there’s slightly less fog obstructing everything:

High Point Monument: so that's what it looks like!

According to a plaque at the base…

High Point Monument
Height 220 Feet

Base 34 feet square at the platform and 19 feet square where apex begins
The base of the monument is erected on the highest point in the state of New Jersey
Altitude 1803 feet above sea level
Corner stone laid June 8, 1929

Look, an informative plaque.

WE HAVE GLADSTONE TRAINS!!!

The first Gladstone train in over a month!!!

Finally— FINALLY— after much griping and lots of Adventures in Mass Transit™— NJ Transit finished cleaning up Hurricane Sandy’s mess on the Gladstone branch, and as of today, trains are stopping at the New Providence station once more!

Hello first Gladstone train!

This is a momentous occasion— the last scheduled train ran through here on October 28 (2012), so it’s been over a month since we had any rail traffic (not counting test trains).

Because I am a huge nerd, I got up early just to see THE ABSOLUTE FIRST passenger-carrying Gladstone train come through. Like I said— this is a momentous occasion, not to be missed!

Goodbye first Gladstone train!

You have NO IDEA how happy this makes me. I heart Gladstone trains.

(I can recommend these all as pretty decent sources that helped me get through this period of elusive information.)
