Red Sky at Morning

Oregon City had an absolutely amazing sky this morning. This was taken about 7:00 am, looking toward Mt. Hood (east). Too bad the power lines were in the way.

When I was a girl growing up on the coast, my dad often repeated the sailors' couplet:
Red sky at morning, sailors take warning.
Red sky at night, sailors delight.

Sure enough, about 1/2 hour after this gorgeous sunrise, it began to rain, and it rained all day.
