Red Sky in the Morning

Post 1


The rule also holds good in the deserts of the American southwest.

A blood red sky in the morning means a wrath-of-God class storm within the day.

There's a classic of Western art depicting a cowboy leading his horse to higher ground under a blood red sky, against the impending storm and flash floods, title, if I'm not mistaken, "Cowboy Take Warning".

Its hard to credit the sky could be a color like that till one has actually seen it.


This is close, but redder.

A very, very old saying as I remember it goes:
Red in the morning, sailor takes warning.
Red at night, sailor's delight.
