    Re: Foggy and misty

    Foggy: (adjective)


    1. Stunned or confused and slow to react (as from blows or drunkenness or exhaustion)
    2. Indistinct or hazy in outline
    3. Filled or abounding with fog or mist
    4. Obscured by fog

    We can also say "I haven't the foggiest notion of where she went. " meaning "not clear"

    Misty: (adjective)


    1. Filled or abounding with fog or mist
    2. Wet with mist

    Eg: The misty evening

    Hope that helps.

    Regards,
    SF

    In general, fog is much thicker than mist.
