The valley fog hung low over town like a cold, wet blanket for almost a week. When the sunshine finally broke through, everyone spilled out of their houses. We walked to Skinner Butte, a perfect spot to acclaim the sunshine. Others were doing the same, and this Acclaim looked like it was showing the effects of its sun worship. Of course one just needed to climb even taller Spencer Butte to be above the fog, but it was nice to actually see the town and valley instead of a sea of white punctuated by the taller hills and mountains.
