  •  the sunsets are unimpressive here in Portland (9+ / 0-)

    but the sunrises are pretty amazing.

    One of the quirks of Pacific Northwest weather is that the weather Gods hide the sun during the daytime, and then they clear the skies during the night while you're asleep.  If you get up early, like I do, you awaken to clear blue skies...which by 10:00AM will likely be overcast.  You have about a 90 minute window in the early morning of mostly clear skies...with just enough wispy clouds to give the early sun a canvas to paint upon.

    I can't tell you how many mornings I watch unfold in beautiful pinks, oranges and violets..only to see them quickly throw that gaudy garb in the trash and change back into it's comfortable housecoat of gray.

    Through early morning fog I see visions of the things to be the pains that are withheld for me I realize and I can see...
