up in the sky

[OT from cottage renovations]

This image was yesterday morning's consolation prize. 
Shorter days and longer nights this time of year mean that one has to leave the Grove before there's light, and return to it in darkness.  The situation wasn't helped by some sort of operational problem on the railroad that caused the cancellation of our train (it's more of a big deal for us because there are only three of them in the morning). 

When this happens the fallback is to cross the tracks and take the No. 61 Ride-On bus to the Metro.  The resulting 20 minute time offset gave this splashy sunrise a chance to happen, us a chance to see it, and me the opportunity to share it in this space.
