The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
-Psalm 19:1

Do you know that God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?
-Job 37:15

SKY WATCH FRIDAY time! Welcome all sky fans!!! I truly appreciate your visit and comments. I might not have time to respond to you, but I will try my best to visit!!!

Our hosts: Klaus Sandy Sylvia Wren Louise Fishing Guy

Thanks, also,to Dot and Tom, who were instrumental in the success of this blogging event. You should definitely come fly with us!Fortunately, the temperatures didn't dip this morning as low as the forecast was hinting that it might. When I saw the 30°, I shivered... even before the temperature plunged, just in anticipation of more cold weather. It did get down to 34°, which offered some light frost, and with the drastic drop caused some intense fog, especially in the form of evaporation or steam fog over the small bodies of water and the river passing through town (which continues to recede--hallelujah!!!) It was so thick at one point that I could hardly see the car in front of me. Unfortunately, as is common with winter days in south Georgia, unlike what we experienced earlier in the month (the solid cold), our mornings tend to approach freezing with daytime temperatures quickly rebounding. It's a common occurrence for there to be a span of 30° between the high and the low. The complication arises when we try to dress for that, especially children standing out at school bus stops. No winter coats, so we layer them, but by the time recess rolls around, they have shed most of their layers (God only knows where they ended up), and by the time they leave school, they forgot they even wore a sweatshirt and jacket over their short sleeved shirt which they will be wearing home.

I shouldn't complain too much. At least we aren't in line for what TWC has dubbed, the "Triple Threat". With Winter Storm Advisories spanning from New Mexico to North Carolina, including an ice, sleet and freezing rain threat, in addition to the snow, they've got a rough road ahead, with likely power outages and road closures.Collection of maps for this weather event.

  1. I didn't know that you have a 30-degree high low difference during these months.

    We did have thick fog the past week, but I am just energized when I saw the blue skies and was kissed by the sun this am. Glorious.

    Enjoy the rest of the week.

  2. There I am in that nasty pink!

  3. Glorious! Nice weather.
    Have a lovely day dearest.

  4. Awww... no Alaska weather? Seriously bummed out, here.

  5. That is what I call true serenity. It's so peaceful. Love the composition. With all that storm chasing weather you have this image is one to catch the breathe.

  6. so soft and lovely. I love the warm sepia tone of this sky.

  7. The sun looks like it was trying really hard to come out. Gives great colours xo

  10. Beautiful shot, - the glow behind the bare trees particularly effective.

  11. Beautiful photo, the colours are so pretty.

  12. Our temperatures do the same thing as yours--huge differences between the night and day. This is a year-round thing most of the time.

    Your picture is beautiful. I'm not a big fan of fog, but it can make some wonderful pictures.

  13. Wow that pic is a definite keeper.

    All the best
