Fog

Homichlophobia (from Greek omíkhlē, "mist", "dimness"), also known as nebulaphobia (from Latin nebula, "cloud"), is the fear of fog. This fear is due to a negative experience involving fog, like an automobile accident. Some sufferers may fear supernatural entities like ghosts or magical creatures hiding behind the curtain of fog. So sufferers would not go out when it is foggy, and some would not driving at all even though it is clear because they think that fog may suddenly roll in.

Homichlophobia can be treated by teaching patients all about the fog, especially that it is a natural (not supernatural) phenomena. But many may prefer professional treatment, like counseling, support groups, prescribed drugs, or hypnosis.
