Thanks, also,to Dot and Tom, who were instrumental in the success of this blogging event. You should definitely come fly with us! I want to share with you my sunrise this morning. The sky glowed with pink, purple, salmon, gold... it was truly breath-taking, a great reminder of God's glory and His outpouring of blessings into my life.Ahh, yes, the sky was alive this morning.
Our skies during this outrageously cold spell have been splendid. We've had amazing displays of billowing altocumulus (where they look like contrails lined up). We've had altocumulus cushions plastered across the sky, as if God, Himself, spilled cotton balls, and they got caught in the sky. Yesterday, I encountered such a display leaving work (and my wonderful groom sent me a similar picture where it almost resembled mammatus clouds, my favorite!) Like I said though... COLD SPELL!!! We are dealing, once again, with below freezing temps. The northeast is recovering from yesterday's blizzard, but we are dealing with worse cold than I've experienced here in a long time. The chatter here now, is the potential we have for s#@w tomorrow, that's right... a system is fast approaching. Parts of southern Alabama are under a winter storm watch.
A DEVELOPING AREA OF LOW PRESSURE NEAR THE TEXAS GULF COAST WILL MOVE EASTWARD THROUGH FRIDAY AFTERNOON. AS THIS LOW APPROACHES THE REGION TONIGHT...PRECIPITATION WILL BEGIN TO DEVELOP ACROSS THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE...FLORIDA BIG BEND AND SOUTH CENTRAL GEORGIA. THE RAIN WILL OCCASIONALLY MIX WITH SNOW OVER THE INLAND FLORIDA PANHANDLE AND PORTIONS OF SOUTHWEST AND SOUTH CENTRAL GEORGIA (that's here!!)...ESPECIALLY FRIDAY MORNING AND AFTERNOON. DUE TO WARM AIR AT THE SURFACE...LITTLE OR NO SNOW ACCUMULATION IS EXPECTED. ANY ACCUMULATION THAT OCCURS WILL BE CONFINED TO GRASSY OR ELEVATED SURFACES.Try to stay warm...
