The other night, while curled up on the sofa with Button, I spotted a sun dog. No, not a labrador playing abound the sun, this is a meteorological phenomenon which is a bit like an upright mini rainbow (er without the bowing effect). It was to the right hand side of the sun so "after" the sun and seen as a portent of bad weather. It seems it was correct as we had a big storm the next day!
If the sun dog is "ahint" (behind) the sun, like all "good" dogs should be, then it foretells good weather - apparently. Anyway these aren't great pictures but it was a lovely display to watch. I love the big skies here.
