A Pleasant Surprise…

My goodness! Is that the SUN??? (The Spokesman-Review)
My goodness! Is that the SUN??? (The Spokesman-Review)

Good evening, Netizens...

I simply could not resist taking this picture earlier today when, for a very brief period of time, the sun actually made its presence known to Spokane. It was still frigid (although not nearly as cold as previous nights this week) and snow covered everything. But for a very brief moment in time, the sun faintly shone through the break between snow storms, and for that brief moment, the day seemed unquestionably more beautiful than ever.

Then after awhile, as if satisfied that it had satiated Spokane's need for a brief respite, the downy gray clouds moved back in and it began to snow in earnest once more.

A small but not necessarily quiet voice stated, “It must be a Christmas present from God.”

Who am I to argue with such divine logic?
