  • A “Once A Decade” Fog Event Occurred At The Grand Canyon [14 HQ Photos]

    Usually the Grand Canyon offers stunning views stretching for miles, deep into valleys etched by the Colorado River. But that vista has changed over the past few days, as a rare weather event has filled the canyon with fog, offering an even more stunning view than is typical. The weather event is known as a temperature inversion, and it only happens every few years, according to the National Park Service. Temperature inversions typically happen in the winter when there are long nights, and as the name implies, an inversion takes place when a layer of cool air gets trapped underneath warmer air, according to the National Weather Service (NWS). This is the reverse of the usual pattern, with temperature generally decreasing with increasing altitude. “Once the sun goes down, the ground loses heat very quickly, and this cools the air that is in contact with the ground,” the NWS explained. “However, since air is a very poor conductor of heat, the air just above the surface remains warm. Conditions that favor the development of a strong surface inversion are calm winds, clear skies, and long nights,” which is exactly what’s taking place in the Grand Canyon now, according to weather more »

  • Once a Decade Clouds Engulf the Grand Canyon Creating a Surreal Scene (9 HQ Photos)

    Once every ten years or so the Grand Canyon is taken over by a sea of fog caused by a temperature inversion, in which warm air traps cool air, pollution, and fog near the ground. Although the inversions are quite common, happening once or twice a year at the site, but rarely seen like this due to cloudy skies. According to one of the park rangers, many tourists who visited the canyon that day had no idea of how amazing it was that they were seeing such a phenomenon and were just disappointed that they couldn’t see the Colorado River through all the fog.

Shops with shutters down, rough area, ghetto. Streets are almost empty, apocalyptic compared to NYC’s standards today. The areas that aren’t covered with abandon buildings covered in graffiti are open fields covered in rubbish and trash. Thank you Rudy Giuliani.
