Living under the dome

As I was driving to the Mount at noon today I had to stop and take this picture. It perfectly shows the "dome" that we in the Great Lakes region live under for 2-3 months a year. The beautiful blue sky with fluffy white clouds appears on the horizon for an hour, forming a sort of weather border. The edge of the grey winter dome that hovers over the city is starkly apparent in this photo.

It helps when the sky and clouds are showing a bit....for when the dome extends all the way down, whoa, it can be tough to stay cheerful! But, on the flip side, you can understand how we really, really, really appreciate and enjoy spring....only 51 days...and on Palm Sunday this year. How nice!
