Red sky at morning...

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.

  1. It was very warm here today so we quickly put the outside decorations away because tomorrow is suppose to be much lower temps. I do not know how you deal with temps that cold though. Stay warm, dear friend. Dianntha

  4. When I told my hubby where you live, a visible shudder went down him -- so cold! We lived in Iowa for 6 years, and that was close enough. So glad you have that nice, warm fire. Stay inside and cozy, Jody!

  5. It was not fun. We watched the cold front creep up the valley. As it got closer, the temperature kept dropping. I saw the same sunrise and thought of the exact same quote.

  7. Lovely sky, Jody. Just reading about your falling temps sends a shiver over me. It has been in the 40s here and I cannot get warm for anything. Stay warm!!!
