Winter Sky

<-- No, that sky is far away from me now, on the other side of the world in Idaho.

Here, most of the country is all Jack Frosted with ice and snow, enough to bring out skaters and sledders, prompting newspaper diagrams of how you are supposed to crawl back out of the ice when you fall through a hole you make in it. But that's not here. Yet. Rain came last night, great to sleep to. Cold rain, it was.

On its way to sunset today, the sun did a hot flare pattern over the roofs






The sun is really that little tiny bright spot at the bottom of the dark cloud band, with the flaring way up in front of the higher clouds.

Then as it moved southwest it seemed to






Even though what you are seeing is not the sun at all, but reflected fire from the clouds at their many angles to the sun --- which has gone down way behind the rooflines.

There were tiny patches and strips of ice on the wavy sidewalks this morning, so walking home will be fun. Slowwwwwwwww fun. I want the stones in the sidewalks to wave up and down [if they have to], instead of me.

Is that kind of eerie? Makes me want to crawl in a warm bed.

Haha I had the totally opposite reaction from yours. Not eerie but exciting. Made me want to go fly up to all the soft light rays which were making a fountain above the sun, and swim into and around them.

The lower pic was full of motion I couldn't show: changing by the second, as the clouds moved their fire... which was reallyreally cold in reality :)

When I darken my screen a bit, it looks like two big blobby eyes with rays shooting upwards, now that IS eerie! ... especially since the real sun is far beneath them.

Ah the wonders of frozen clouds and their maskings...
