This is the sky just before sunset (by sunset the clouds had closed in again) I wasn’t sure I’d get a sky photo this weekend since for much of the day the sky was on the ground (misty rain with low visibility). But the clouds cracked briefly.
One evening this past week we had another cloud break sunset:
The cold north wind began in the middle of the day yesterday, to chase the clouds away. We awoke to a cold clear morning.
Reminded me of the Lord of the Rings.
In Seattle the north wind usually brings clear weather, in the winter it can be very cold, since the wind is coming from Alaska and Canada. A long time ago I wrote this description of how I loved the cold, very clean north wind when I was a child: Winter wind from the north.
