As the sun was coming up last Thursday morning. My granddaughter, Olivia Clatterbuck always loved looking at the beautiful sky when it was different colors.

A wonderful sight

I’m not sure if anyone saw the beautiful sky last Friday morning, Oct. 15,  when the sun was beginning to come up. Needless to say, I wish I had taken a photo of it. Amanda Alther from Harris Hollow took a photo. And it was the most beautiful sky I have ever seen. I know my granddaughter was looking down from above that morning. Thank you Amanda for the beautiful photo.
