Red sky at dawning...

Getting to work at about 07:40, dawn was like a conflagration, handsbreadth high, of intense red, just shading into orange near the horizon. And the weather forecast is for rain to arrive this a.m. and continue until tomorrow afternoon.

With the eccentricity of the Earth's orbit, evenings stop drawing in about now, but sunrise continues to be later up to the New Year. So we're getting close to the nadir now, but with one measure - the more obvious one to me, getting up in the dark - making things more miserable for a while yet.

"red sky at dawning" in the navy was when a storm was ahead at sea,
"sailors fair warning' came from somewhere along time ago.
