22 January 2009
A much warmer and sunnier day than in a while... rose to about 42F and was totally calm. We took the opportunity of the better conditions to drive up to Christiansburg and buy Sherwin-Williams paint for the living room and ground floor bathroom. Tomorrow should be in the mid-50s before a cooling trend returns - meaning I can paint and open the windows to clear the smell and speed drying. There are several hundred feet of crown molding and baseboard to paint before they are installed next week but that can be done in the shop (although those 16 foot long pieces are a challenge in a small space).
It was another superb and long-lasting sunset tonight. Click on the image to get a full-screen version to study the details in the clouds. The colour is fairly accurate in the clouds but the sky was a more intense blue.
