The Home Front

What a sunrise!

There's a bit of mist or frost in the air this morning, and that along with the high clouds made for one of the most spectacular sunrises I've seen. For a few brief minutes, the entire sky - not just the eastern sky - positively glowed bright pink. Every window in the house was glowing nearly a fluorescent pink. It then turned to gold, then a bright yellow light.

Now that the sun is fully risen, it's settled down to a dull gray with a faint purple tint, and is not nearly as bright. I can't tell if the sky is completely overcast at this point, or if the blue just hasn't started to shine through.

A great morning to be an early bird. :)
