Red sky at night, shepherd's delight.
Red sky at morning, shepherds take warning.
This is the sky we woke up to this morning. Thankfully, we have NOAA weather service and we knew that a cold, windy front would be howling through today even before we woke up to a red sky. It was just as predicted. We woke up to a balmy 42* F and by late afternoon the temperature had sunk to a mere 2*. And the wind. Ohhh the wind! I'm guessing windchill temps were, according to my handy-dandy windchill chart , -25 to -35* F depending on the gusts. The coals are banked up in the stove tonight and there's a lovely red glow, just as bright as the morning sky, but warmer. Much warmer.
