Crossroads residents woke up to a thick blanket of fog this morning, causing everyone to take it slow. Visibility was reduced to less than a quarter of a mile, prompting the national weather service to issue a dense fog advisory.

Many people, including Parks and Recreation crews in Victoria... were forced to  postpone work until visibility improved.

Of course, fog can be dangerous for those behind the wheel. According to tips on the Texas Department of Insurance website,

Drivers should always use your low beam headlights. high beams reflect off the fog bank and back into the drivers eyes.  Also, never use the cruise control, brake slowly, and keep as much space between your vehicle and other vehicles as possible. With more fog anticipated, its important that everyone drive with caution while on the roads.

"It was real foggy at 6:30 this morning, we had to wait about 30 minutes, so it could let up a little bit. it was real heavy and soupy this morning."   Said Eddie Cunpain with Victoria Parks and Recreation.
