Sandy Sunset

Uploaded by: ChrisAnthemum

Saturday October 27, 2012

Westfield, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Clouds spun off from Hurricane Sandy have been colliding with another set driven along by a cold front approaching from the west, making for a day of turbulent clouds overhead but only light winds at ground level and no rain. The clouds parted at sunset long enough to allow this colorful display.

Thank you, Mary! I was hoping for a repeat of last night's sunset tonight, since weather conditions during the day were so similar, but it never happened.

Gorgeous colors! We have been having the same weather as you, breezy with lots of clouds moving quite fast across the blue and sometimes gray sky. Congratulations Kathy!

Thank you all so much for adding your comments, Wanda, Jan, Doug, Elaine, James, and Ingrid! So far, all is well here on Sunday midday; there are still clouds and some wind, with the sun peeking through at intervals like yesterday, but no rain and nothing very scary going on. Rain is in the forecast for the next few days. Thanks for all your well wishes!

For a discussion of the expected impact of Sandy on the area where I live -- we are just east of the mountains of western NC and just below the Virginia border, near Mount Airy and Pilot Mountain -- you might want to watch the nine-minute-long video below, dated today.

Thank you, Eileen and Charlotte! Believe it or not, this photo was only lightly saturated, no other editing done.

Last night's sunset was just as colorful in its own way!

Thank you, approvers!

Thank you, Julie! So far so good; if it weren't for the weather reports, I wouldn't even know there was a hurricane lurking around. We are set in quite a way from the coast.
