DFW Airport Fog

Sometimes serene and beautiful, fog takes on a sinister side when it comes to aviation, leading to economic losses on a daily basis somewhere around the world, and on occasion, casualties from related plane crashes. More commonly, on flight dockets already strained to the limits by overscheduling, even brief fog episodes at major airports can hurl substantial portions of the national commercial aviation system into a chaotic quagmire of delays, cascading every which way from the source of the problem. Numerous flights left or arrived late this day, including the connection on which I was supposed to depart for Raleigh. It was a good thing, too; for my flight arriving from OKC (and fron which this photo was taken) also was late.
