Chapter 6, Page 12, Book 10

Is the old adage Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky in morning, sailor’s take warning true, or is it just an old wives’ tale?

Weather lore has been around since people needed to predict the weather and plan their activities. Sailors and farmers relied on it to navigate ships and plant crops

During sunrise and sunset the sun is low in the sky, and it transmits light through the thickest part of the atmosphere. When we see a red sky at night, this means that the setting sun is sending its light through a high concentration of dust particles. This usually indicates high pressure and stable air coming in from the west. Basically good weather will follow

We did have a beautiful sunset last evening. I actually had to get up out of my chair by the campfire and go take a picture for you all to see.

It is a beautiful sunny morning here in Ohio. Yet they are predicting some rain today and tomorrow too so we'll just have to wait and see what happens.

No matter the weather I'm hoping for a SUPER Saturday and I do hope your's is a SUPER one too!

I love sunsets, too. For several years I got to watch the sunset over the Hudson River from my office window and it was always wonderful. Never grew tired of it. Have a wonderful Sunday!
