North Texas Sunrises and Sunsets
Just about the first thing Cindy and I noticed when we moved to the Dallas-Ft Worth metroplex seven years ago was the incredible beauty of the sunrises and sunsets.
I remember the first day we were here---we were staying in a hotel, and at the end of a busy afternoon working with a realtor looking at homes, we walked to a restaurant adjacent to our hotel and were astounded by the raging colors of the western sky.
We stood there, fixated on the wonder of the rapidly changing hues and brilliance of the clouds. A passerby remarked to us that almost every day features an atmospheric show like that. They were correct. I don't know if it is because of the dust content of the western breeze or the color of the land beneath the clouds, or just God's preference that Texas have beautiful shows at dusk and dawn; but the skies of Texas remind us of the beauty of our earth and the wonders it contains.
