Red Sky Confusion

20140323 015We haven’t had rain for 4 months, but some storms north of us gave us some interesting clouds.  I was excited in the morning with the red sky – as it threatened rain, but the red sky in the evening said no. “Red Sky in the morning, shepherds take warning, red sky at night, shepherds’ delight.”   I posted these on the Open Group for Bedlam Farm Facebook page, and many people said they had heard that rhyme before but as a sailor’s warning.   They too were confused, but enjoyed the images.
