The long, golden autumn has given way to chilly northern winds, darkening clouds, and the threat of rain (or snow). Winter arrives just as DST leaves. I took this picture of Salt Lake City as Smith was driving along I-215 on the way to favorite community radio station to pick up our "thank you gift" t-shirt. If you look closely you can see the Utah State Capitol (left side) and a "U" on the mountain just above the University of Utah. Along the drive we also saw a low arching rainbow and, at the other end of the valley, at the same time, sunlight streaming through the clouds. When driving our freeways one has an expansive view of the Salt Lake Valley.
Today I am making a pact with myself to take full advantage of the extra hours of daytime freedom and to soak up as much sunlight as is possible. The one wrench thrown into this desire is a knee gone bad. My "good knee" has given out, and it is excruciatingly painful. Tuesday I have a doctors appointment and I have no idea what he'll find, what he'll think, or what's in store. Wish me luck.
