Or at least it looked like the sun rose in the west this morning when I took the dogs out. The sky was clear in the east, but the clouds high in the west were reflecting the as-yet unrisen sun, making it appear as if the West side of the sky was lighter than the East. The illusion was so distinct that even the trees were brighter on the west side. I’ve only seen this a few times when there was heavy rain near sunset, and it is kind of creepy.
Just so you know, the sun came up right were it was supposed to, and the illusion vanished. (ha!)
Work went well yesterday, and I smacked down a few snarls in the Madison rewrite. It should go faster now that the first couple of chapters are done. I’m hoping to tuck a few chapters away so I can work on revamping the website. You won’t see anything for a while as I rebuild with new software, then plunk the new site down sometime late next week, I’m thinking. unfortunately I can’t just save the website in a new format and tidy it up. The two systems don’t talk well, and rebuilding it page by page gives me a chance to really learn how to work the new system. I did the front page last night and got it all except for the rolling banner. You can blame the rolling banners for the switch, so I’d better get this figured out. I never liked how they worked, and am hoping that this new system loads faster.
