Nature in her gaudiest dress made a sudden dramatic though brief appearance on the world's stage this morning. Hastily snapped between 7:48 and 7:55 a.m. at the front door as I was leaving the house and then standing at the bus stop...
Nor dim nor red, like God's own head,
The glorious Sun uprist.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
