1/9/14 Lorain, Ohio, USA – It was still bitterly cold at sunrise this morning.  The temperature was 10 degrees.  We are, however, expected to climb back up to mid-twenties today as the “polar express” recedes back up to the north.  We survived two days of minus 10 degrees with wind chills near 40 below zero.  A warming trend is expected and forecasts are  calling for a January thaw.  Tomorrow temperatures are expected to be above freezing.

The sun was bright this morning at dawn, and wild birds wasted no time eating breakfast at the feeder.  Below a female cardinal waits her turn to grab some seed.  She has been a steady visitor throughout the bitter cold.

A huge jet left a crystal path in the sky as it climbed. What a view it must be from up there, watching the sun rise and the world awake.
