An hour or so before sunset, this colorful cloud appeared in the southwestern sky. When I first noticed it out my window, I thought I was just getting some sort of light effect from the dual-paned widow itself. But it looked that way from outside, too. At least around these parts, this is an unusual sight.
Yesterday we had heavy wind (gust here up to 35, which is rare, but other areas nearby had much stronger) and quite a bit of rain (1.4 inches here, more elsewhere). Today very chilly, by local standards (high 55F). More rain coming in the next few days, and likely a cold night tonight. Winter is here.
