I grew up in Carroll County, where some of the best cabbage in the world is grown.
Recently, I was visiting near the Blue Ridge Parkway for a few days. On a Wednesday morning when I needed to return to Salem, it was very foggy. In order to find a less foggy route, I decided to go by way of U.S. 58, Virginia 100 and Interstate 81.
The fog and clouds were gone before I got to Hillsville, so I decided to go to the farmers market to find some fresh vegetables.
I found some cabbage heads that had been harvested after 7 a.m. that morning and bought three perfect heads. When I got to Salem about 2:30, I packed two cabbages in a box to ship by UPS to my sister in Williamsburg (formerly of Carroll County).
She called me at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday to say that the UPS man had left her a most wonderful surprise package. The box weighed eight pounds and cost $15 to ship. Hearing her express her joy and appreciation was "priceless."
So fog is not always bad, when you take the right road.
