Moods of the sky behind our weather instruments 2020-21

Dear WeatherCat observers of the seasons turning,

We are now almost 2 months after the Autumnal equinox, but here in California, the transition to winter is slow in coming.  Finally, we have had the first significant rainstorm of the season, and with that, hopefully the end of any more wild fire concerns.  It wasn't exactly a red sky, but there was some drama in the clouds around sunrise:



Hopefully this is the first rains of what will be a more normal rainy season for California and the rest of the drought-parched west . . . . .

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

If this map can be trusted, you will have a fire-free holiday season! https://www.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/basicwx/92fndfd.gif

Maybe a good time to get that generator repaired? ThU32:-)

The Moon and a bird after sunset . . (Re: Moods of the sky . . . 2020-21)

Dear WeatherCat observers of the seasons turning,

Tonight is the November full Moon.  Two nights ago, I captured this photo in the early evening shortly after sunset:



It is a fairly typical photo with a twist.  If you look at the top of the pine tree, you'll notice a bird perching right at the top!

All together I thought it was a pleasing scene.
