Dense freezing fog combined with light freezing drizzle dropped the visibility to just about zero this past Sunday along the east slopes of the southern Sacramento Mountains. We were at mile marker #60 on US Hwy 82 just north of Dunken in southwestern Chaves County when I took these photos. I estimated the visibility to be about 30 yards with a temperature at 6:03 PM MST of 31ºF and dropping.

As we were coming into Artesia my wife shot this photo with her cell phone from inside of our truck. The ice had accumulated on the trucks antenna about 1/4" thick.
