LOTS OF PEOPLE HAVE SEEN THIS I’M SURE, BUT A PINK SUNRISE WAS SOMETHING NEW FOR ME

TORONTO has some wonderful winter sunsets, but I’ve never seen a sunrise quite like this one. Between 07:13 and 07:20 this morning my office was bathed in pink. Outside, rain and snow were in the forecast, but for those seven minutes the view inside was quite tropical. <ABOVE – the pink sky from Uptown by BENITO, Urban Toronto.ca>THEN IT FADED AWAY – another day began, and we were back to normal.

WHAT IS AN ‘ALBERTA CLIPPER’? TORONTO IS ABOUT TO FIND OUT

An ALBERTA CLIPPER is a fast-moving winter storm originating in the lee of the Canadian Rockies. It brings snow, high winds and cold temperatures typically to the Northeastern United States, the Upper Midwest, the Great Lakes and the central provinces of Canada.
