A remarkably lurid eastern sky is announcing the approach of the sun right now. The coulds which are expected to bring rain by tomorrow have begun gathering and are reflecting the morning light in such vivid shades of red that it might, but for the clarity of the air, be mistaken for the light of a forest fire. This might be the last day of any appreciable sunshine for a while. The last few bright days have been a nice break from the usual seasonal pattern, but I won't mind getting back to the normal rain. I'll enjoy listening to it.
