Fun Fact of the Day

Fun Fact of the Day: Fog is made up of tiny water droplets all suspended in what is essentially a cloud on the ground and contains up to 0.5 ml of water per cubic metre.
To visualise this, if you were to fill an Olympic sized swimming pool with fog and then somehow condense it, you would be left with around 1.25 litres of water (or just over 2 pints).
