Red Sky in the Morning…

By Vladimir Brezina

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

This was the sight today at 7 a.m. …

For the first time this winter, we might get some real snow. Finally! We are looking forward to it.

  1. Beautiful photos as usual..! Cheers…

  2. I love the snow. It’s one of the few things I miss since moving from Long Island. My brother not so much, he’s “the plow guy” lol

  3. Beautiful NYC photos. Prepared today for possible blizzard and not being able to get out for a couple of days.

  4. Beautiful! I look forward to the snowy photos to follow.

  5. One of my favorite weather sayings, Vlad; I researched it as a kid and there are some scientific reasons why this is true. Hope you get the snow you want; I would be happy to share some of our snow with you :-)

    • … although, unfortunately, it’s a weather saying that never seems to work in practice when you really need it…

      We’ve now (Saturday morning) got some snow of our own, thank you very much, Lynn! ;-)

  6. Beautiful! Can’t wait to see the pictures of the snow!

  7. the morning photo is amazing!!!! i am glad that you’re happy to have those conditions! i look forward to the photos but will enjoy them from my perch here on the equator!

  8. That morning photo was fantastic! I’m pretty sure we have a sunrise buried under all the fog and rain we’ve had so much of lately, but I’d almost forgotten what one looked like. Thanks again for reminding me!

  9. Batten down the hatches – my own Miss Z is on her way out early AM tomorrow heading to where there is already snow!

    • I hope she made it! (I am writing this late Friday morning.) As is usual nowadays, the airlines preemptively canceled most flights already yesterday, trains are being canceled today… If the snow is as heavy as predicted, it will be chaos for the next few days…

      • Yes, thanks for asking, they are halfway home and so far so good. It seems as though there is not as much snow on the roads (yet) as predicted… Get some supplies in, put on your jammies, charge your phone and stay in! It is snowing here as well but that is nothing out of the ordinary…

  10. Stock up and hunker down. Enjoy!
    And these photos, wow and wowie wow wow!

  11. I wish we would have (had) some snow down here, too! But at least we did get some good rain yesterday, thank goodness.
    Best regards from southern TX,
    Pit

  12. The evening shot is amazing – the colour, the clouds … When I lived in Canada I remember thinking the snow seemed to make the cold bearable, especially when it came in time for the weekend – hope yours is magical :)

  13. Gorgeous pictures! I’m headed out east for a big conference in DC but luckily we won’t be getting the storm there but my friends who are from the northeast may have a difficult time getting there on time! But it sure is great to get a big old storm and lots of snow!

  14. Lucky ducks! We haven’t had much at all here. Beautiful shots!

  15. I’m excited for it too here in the Boston area. I survived the big blizzard of 78, so I’m sure to survive this one!

  16. wonderful shots. we had a harsh winter, hope you get the snow :-)

  17. Fine shots, bring on the snow!

  18. wishing you snow! marvellous photos :-)

  19. Wonderful pics!!! My congratulations!!!

  20. Love the pictures. Enjoy the snow, but be safe of course :)

  21. I remember—just barely from babyhood in Nassau County—the blizzard of 1947, when New York got 26 inches of snow. It may have inconvenienced people, but not children. Let’s see what you grownup children get 65 years later.

  22. First “BIG” snow in five years on it’s way to may part of the world (Southern Ontario) Woo Hoo!

    BE SAFE!! Hope you are stocked up with favorite foods, books,movies, etc!!

  24. …Sailor (kayaker) take warning! :-)

  25. Gray Seattle skies cleared yesterday and we were up to 50 degrees. Not gloating though – there are pluses and minuses to any climate. I’m sure you will find beauty this weekend, and I look forward to the next posts.

  26. LOL, as soon as I saw your title-I said aloud, “sailors take warning.” My dad used that saying often when I was a child. I hope you guys stay warm and enjoy the beauty of the snow. Maybe kayaks can be used as sleds too? :)

  27. Love the texture of the sky in the 5PM one…
