Did you read my post from yesterday afternoon? It's HERE
I anxiously awaited the possibility an auroral event last night but there was nary an ether, vapor, aurora or borealis. Nothing. Nada. It's disappointing because if you've ever seen a spectacular aurora you're very anxious to see another.
HOWEVER....... this morning I awoke to a very, very STRANGE occurrence. The sky was overcast with clouds but glowing a bright orangish yellow, the color of th einside of a ripe melon. It was bizarre. At first I thought the house across the street was on fire, that's how bright it shown through the blinds. But no, it was the sky.
And now the orangish glow is fading but as the sun rises behind the cloud cover it's getting darker. Every moment it's getting darker and it's really scary because it's dead still here. Not a bird, not an insect, nothing. OK, seriously I'm getting creeped out here and it takes alot to creep me out.
OK, I'm off to turn the TV on and see what the heck is going on.
Something dangerous is brewing.
UPDATE: No word about the creepy orange/yellow sky but shortly after that faded and everything got really dark a storm rolled through traveling at 60 mph. The good thing about that was that it blew past pretty quickly. The sky color that spells real danger for us is a sickly greenish color. That means find shelter - quick! We're fine and now it's just a steady rain. I'll be keeping my eyes on the weather channel though.
