Keeping an eye peeled.
I took a moment at 9 pm to step outside to catch the last bit of sunset after the storm, focusing across the valley and down about 5,000 feet to our state capitol.
We can see the capitol building all lit up if we stand in the middle of the street in front of our house.
The capitol is on the other side of the tree on the right.
After ten years of living on the flat sea level land in Texas, we find having such views to be enough to make us crazy enough to stand in the middle of the street to get our "view" fix. Luckily, we do live on a pretty quiet street....
The sky will be clearing: I will set my alarm for 4 am and take a peek outside. I'm not ready to give up on this Northern Lights possibility quite yet!
