Fair is foul, and foul is fair:That may be a bit harsh. But there seemed something of the heath in the fog at KVKX when I arrived this morning. The airport is nestled in a valley and the occasional dense fog is the price we pay for the protection afforded by the surrounding higher terrain.
Hover through the fog and filthy air.

After departure, most of the trip to Connecticut was on top in clear conditions. The cloud layer that we flew over was, however, widespread and quite low. Ceilings at many stations were under 1,000 feet.
The METAR for conditions at KBDR on arrival had this to say:
KBDR 131352Z 36004KT 5SM BR BKN006 OVC023 16/14 A3001 RMK AO2 RAB12E43 SLP161 P0000 T01610144
Just a breath of a breeze from the north, five miles visibility in mist, and broken clouds at 600 feet, overcast above at 2,300. The ILS approach to Runway 6 was on offer.
In the event, N631S and I broke out of the cloud bases at about 450 feet, a mile and a half from the runway threshold. Below, the track for the trip from the nice folks at FlightAware.com.
