Welcome to San Francisco, where aspects of our weather climate are on Twitter.
He’s here, he’s there, he’s literally everywhere — Karl The Fog is perhaps our favorite moniker for the fog that shrouds us on the daily.
Instead of complaining about the incessant mist, SF has embraced it wholeheartedly to the point that it has its own name and personality. And man, Karl is hilarious.
Here are our 10 favorite tweets by our foggy friend.

6. Can’t deny it.
