Default Sometimes light IFR can surprise

Searched for a thread to tag this onto rather than a new one. Kinda' relates to the personal limits discussed here.

Took off IFR from KAVL Asheville in a thin broken dissipating fog this morning. Current and forecast weather at destination KBUY Burlington was VFR. When I was handed over to KGSO Greensboro (about 20 min out) they said expect visual approach which agreed with the automated weather from KBUY. Well... Everybody missed. Flew over KBUY for a look but it was socked in solid below me. I wound up shooting a GPS approach all the way to minimums.

It happens.
