It was a beautiful day up top yesterday. The high was 41 degrees, but with 2 inches of fresh snow, it felt much warmer. The visibility was very good, as well. The low was 23 degrees. It was 23 degrees and cloudy at observation. It looks like it'll clear up this afternoon and be another gorgeous day.
While watching sunrise at Apollo Overlook this morning, I felt as if I was watching gladiators do battle. The sun was relegated to the undercard, as the clouds were the main attraction. They were being dragged towards Myrtle point by some mysterious force, yet befitting their cloudy grace they resisted with all their might. However, once they passed Mt. Pisgah on the horizon, they would accept their fate, fade up and over the point and come out of the world in the same dignified manner that they entered into it. I have much to learn from the clouds.
