Our dogs are our alarm clocks--waking us up promptly at 6:30, but usually we can put them off for a few minutes (well hey, it's cold out there!) Rog and I alternate days getting up to let them out. This morning it was my turn, and my reward was this lovely sunrise.
When we moved here at the beginning of September the sun rose in the northeast corner our yard. Now it is rising almost in the southeast corner.
Tonight we attended a public meeting about the planned future road development. When it happens, we will lose a wide stretch of our yard to right-of-way and we'll gain a 4-lane expressway. Fortunately, it sounds like our stretch of road is about 20 years hence, and a lot can change in 20 years.
