Friday Instant Gratification

Here in Southwest Michigan we can go for weeks in the winter, without seeing the sun. This week we had two sunny days. It doesn’t matter how cold it is, a little sunshine always makes me happy. I tried to grab a few shots with my cell phone.

(Sometimes the cell phone photos tend to come out small, but I’ve found that if you either click on the photo itself, or refresh the webpage, the photos pop back to their normal size.)

We had a heavy, wet snow Thursday night, though most of the storm went north of us and moved eastward to become one of the 2 storm systems hitting the east coast. However, the day before the storm, we had blue skies.

The Library where I work has this interesting grating along the top of the building, so I thought it would make an interesting focal point and still show off the beautiful blue sky.

Today, the day after the storm, has given us another afternoon of sunshine.

Leaving for work this morning: you can see patches of blue far off to the west.

Looking across Bronson Park, the blue patches are getting larger.

The late afternoon sky: only a few light fluffy clouds.

The skylight inside the Library showing off a little prismatic rainbow as the sun shines in.

I wonder what tomorrow will bring us?

    Somehow, blue skies improve things 7 to 10 points. As sick as I am of winter, yesterday was beautiful with the snow.

    Ohio is no different than my native Michigan, winters are long and gray. But those sunny days are such a treasure!
