The News of the Day: While America Shopped... ocean of fog fills the Grand Canyon


Friday morning, the gorges of the Grand Canyon were filled with fog in a rare temperature inversion....


A temperature inversion happens when hot air high up acts as a seal to keep cold air pollution and fog trapped below.


While inversions happen once or twice a year at the Grand Canyon, a full inversion is more unusual, happening closer to every 10 years.

300 days in the ditch, don't ever remember fog.

An ocean of fog fills the Grand Canyon every morning. That's why they invented coffee.
