Dickensian fog has settled over Houston this morning, making the morning commute a hassle.
But that's not all the problems it's causing.
Not only that, but ships are stacking up outside the Port of Houston, waiting for the fog to lift so they can come in.
Reuters reports that 40 ships -- half of them tankers -- are being held up by the Coast Guard.
It's supposed to stay gloomy all day and be foggy again tomorrow morning. So enjoy!
