Red Sky at Morning
"Red sky at night, sailor's delight. Red sky at morning, sailor's warning."
Living in a hot dry state like I now do certainly brings its share of weather adventures. In the year plus that I've lived here, I've experienced a "freak" hail storm that literally poured down tennis ball-sized hail stones, national-news-making dust storms, rapid and dramatic temperature drops, and multiple rainbows in the midst of sun showers.
This morning, when I opened my blinds, the sky was red. So red I had to take a picture. Then I listened to the news and weather. Everything was about the powerful wind and dust storm that was going to take up much of the day--from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m.
Even now, they are talking about thunderstorms and rain. I've not seen or heard the rain/t-storms, but I did see the dust and felt the wind. This is so foreign to me! And interesting.
The pictures show this morning at about 6 a.m. and this evening at about 5:30 p.m. Big difference!
