Red Sky at Morning

Sunrise this morning came in sunset colors. I knew it wasn’t sunset because my front door faces east and it was about 6:30 a.m.

Sailors take warning

Hoo boy, sailors — forget about “take warning.” Run for cover! You guys are doomed.

Uh — never mind.

So it snowed halfheartedly for several hours then the snow in the air turned to rain and the snow on the ground started turning to slush.

By sunset, though, the day had come round. I missed the best of it because I was out walking a neighbor’s dog, but what I caught was pretty good.
