SkyWatch Friday: Red Sky at Night




An old rhyme my Grandfather taught me went: Red sky at night, sailors delight……

The following day was as beautiful as it is possible for a day to be. Granddad was right!

Salty, you put your email address on the Sky Watch Link. I finally figured out what you did. You have countrycaptures @ blogspot.com -- not what you want.

I am so glad you got it changed over. It would have frustrated a lot of people trying to reach you.

The sky in your photograph is really nice. And those colors are some of my wife's favorites.

I remember the other half, as Bobbie said, about red sky in the morning. My mom taught it to me.

But I have to admit, I like the red sky at night, particularly yours here!
