Landmarks vanish in the fog

Photos by Tom Rivers – Fog has descended on the Canal Basin in Medina, nearly obscuring the Glenwood Avenue canal bridge.

MEDINA – I drove from Medina to Albion at around 12:30 this afternoon and many prominent landmarks seemed to have vanished from the landscape.

Big grain facilities and barns are shrouded by the fog that has rolled in. Canal bridges are hard to see, including the Horan Road bridge in Medina.

The Canal Basin trees seem to pop out more with all the white in the sky.

The canal has been drained, and an unfortunate sight at the bottom is often orphaned bicycles and shopping carts.
