Though the fog walked among the streets, our headlights kept us unafraid of disconnection; those two bright bulbs cracked through the clouds for a few extra feet of visibility. During these months, the car became more of an icebox; its heater had long coughed its last warming sigh. The precarious weather did little to help us escape ‘home.’

    This is really great. I can understand that feeling of isolation in a bad fog. It can be pretty scary. And the image of the cold car is just on target.
