Right before sunset
I noticed some color in the sky (other than leaden gray). But it rapidly disappeared. Now we're swathed in fog again. This has been one of the dreariest winters I EVER recall. Where is the powder blue sky of winter that we associate with these days? It's been like November gray from October till now. Still, Cindi got a treat today. She pulled in from her workout to see a splash of color in the yard: two red foxes. They hung around a bit and eventually headed down the Church road toward a neighboring farm. I remember several years back watching one trot down the road in broad-daylight. Well, there was no "broad daylight" today in the St. Louis area, but the foxes were out all the same. Wish I'd seen Mr. and Mrs. Maynard myself.
