Zero visibility

For the last 2-3 days, extremely heavy fog sets in from dusk and is pierced by sunlight only by around 11-11.30am the next morning. Visibility is totally impaired. I even found breathing a bit difficult in the fog, not being used to it. Today, it is not settling down, it is pouring like rain, making the ground wet. A peculiar acrid smell accompanies the fog (not there today, however), so that one feels as if the fog is not 'clean' or 'pure' - more like smog. But I don't know the real source of that smell.

Today, when our gang was going on our after-dinner walk, we found that fog settling among the trees had a very eerie effect. And passing by the temple (which was dark), it really seemed like a scene straight from a horror/thriller movie. This was just the spark we needed. Thereafter, for almost 45 minutes, we thought about scripting a thriller movie (actually, a comedy in which each of us would have roles :) ), and shooting it here in the fog. I thought we had a pretty taut storyline, only some songs and fight sequences needed to be added to make it complete :).
