Pink Sky at Morning

Remember the old saying, "Red sky at night, sailor's delight"? Or this poem?

Morning red and evening gray
Sends the traveller on his way,
But morning gray and evening red
Brings down rain upon his head!

Pink clouds scattered across yesterday morning's sky.

Last night the moon peeked through the clouds, and I observed a pink ring around it. "Ring around the moon, rain coming soon." When I woke up about five this morning, rain was falling hard.

This morning's sky was, of course, gray.

So was the garage floor where the rain blew in. The round spots are the raindrops hitting the concrete.

Rain fell all day—over two inches. We really needed this rain.

Tonight the sky glowed red, but I didn't get outside with my camera in time.
