    I saw a loop of cloud-to-cloud lightning from Highland Park at about 8:20 this morning.  Looked just like the first photograph.

    What a beautiful sunrise! I wonder if this would go with the classic seafaring rhyme ‘Red sky at night, sailors’ delight. Red sky at morning, sailors take warning.’

Sorry, comment time is over.
