I had to run to the store tonight to grab some Diet Coke.  Running to the store is not an easy thing up here in the sticks of New Hampshire, I have to drive five miles each way.  Anyway, it was twilight and it was raining.  The trip to the store is due east and it was dark and gloomy.  However, on the trip home – due west – I was treated to something special. 

It was still raining where I was and there were clouds on the horizon where the sun would be setting.  There was a sliver of sunlight breaking through the clouds that bathed the wet road in a lovely hue.  By the time I got to a clearing where I could look over the countryside at the light – it had changed to an orange color which made it look like a raging fire coming in over the mountains.

Thankfully not a fire, but a stunning sight indeed…
