Northern Light**

“Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky in morning, sailor take warning.”

–Old proverb.

With Twin Cities temps now (well) below freezing, there aren’t many local sailors divining weather clues from the sunset and sunrise.

All the same, I suppose it’s a good omen that the snapshot above — looking southwest across Minneapolis’ Lake Calhoun — was taken just before sunset, not sunrise (by yours truly, on a walk).

Lucky for us locals, there have been a succession of such spectacular sunsets the last few weeks.

Call it a silver lining for the unseasonably cold temps (even for Minnesota this time of year).

**Not to be confused with Northern Lights (plural), the ethereal streaks of lights caused by┬ádisturbances in the earths’s magnetosphere. See, photo above left.
