Red Sky at Night

"Red Sky at Night
Sailor's Delight"

On Monday I ran some errands and was at the grocery store in Strasburg as the sun started to set. The parking lot was crowded because snow was in the forecast so people were buying supplies in case they got snowbound.

Yet we had a lovely red sky! Tradition holds that this means clear weather, but it did not hold true this time. By morning it was snowing, and it continued all day.
