Cloud

Cloud hugging the ground does not smell like the fog to which I was accustomed in Los Angeles. That was either a salty sea fog or a marshy smelling tule fog. This cloud smells more like the refrigerator in the grocery store of the neighborhood where I grew up. It was actually a meat locker, which opened into the dairy case along one wall. (Decidedly not a Kosher store.) Whenever I opened the fogged glass doors of the case to fetch a bottle of milk or a cake of yeast or whatever item needing cold for which I had been sent, I would stand there for a moment taking deep breaths of that cold air with its swirling mists. I don't think they have refrigeration like that in stores anymore. Just those big open display cases. Kids now miss a lot.
