You Can See Forever . . .

. . . Still cold outside (for some folks) but no comparison with early this morning. It was our coldest morning so far. By mid-day, most areas had warmed into the 40s with little or no wind. Visibility is so sharp and clear, seems like I could see from here to Canada. Truly a Mt. Cheaha or Desoto State Park day. Woe is me, I could not be there or there.

Driving home at noon from St. Vincents Hospital (where you can see forever from the highest elevation in the city) the autumn color has suffered considerably from the overnight deep freeze.
