The sun has been a no-show around here for several days and the old phrase "absence makes the heart grow fonder" has never been more true. Everyone I know has complained about how dismal the foggy weather is and how much they've missed the sun. So when the forecast called for at least a couple of days of sunshine for this area we were very excited... and for once, they were right. The fog burned off around 9:00 and it actually heated up to the mid-60's. Beautiful. This picture was shot around 3:30 in the afternoon facing West behind my house.
