Driving back from District Headquarters this afternoon, I had the state highway almost completely to myself. 5 miles or so north of the CDA city limits the town traffic evaporated, and for the next 20 miles I rolled through the fog and mist alone, with no cars visible in windshield or mirror. The sky was low, the fog thick and close and the feeling of solitude on the highway was remarkable. About 5 miles south of Sandpoint the traffic began to reappear, and by the time I got to town I was just one more car in the typical crowd.
