Mini Post: Sun-Dogs

Hey guys!

Just a quick post today, but bear with me, I’m going to have some posts lined up here pretty soon. Trying to get organized…

Anyway, here in Minnesota we’ve been having freezing cold weather. So cold in fact, that there have been a couple of sun-dogs recently. What’s a sun-dog you’re probably asking? Well, if you want the fancy-schmancy answer, click here.

But simply put, sun-dogs happen when it is so cold out there are ice crystals in the air. And then the sun’s light reflects through them in the clouds, causing little rainbows!

Here’s a picture I took a couple years back.


And as I said before, it has to be really cold for this to happen. We’ve temps in the negatives lately, so…we’re cold. 😛

I hoped you learned something new today! And I’ll be back soon with more posts, so stay tuned! 🙂

  2. We aren’t in the negative yet, but we’ve been in the teens and singles digits here in Michigan =D We had a late start to winter (It was close to 50 degrees on Christmas) and it was decent weather up until this month….so I guess I can’t complain…but I’m about ready got Summer 😀 (Which is weird…I’m not a BIG fan of summer….)

    1. We had a really warm Christmas too, but…yeah, I think we were spoiled with all that “warm” weather. 😛 I’m ready for summer too. 🙂

  3. Wow, that looks absolutely beautiful! My cousin’s grandparents live in Minnesota (my uncle grew up there), so maybe someday I’ll get to visit! I live in Georgia, and we’ve just gotten the first snow of the winter today! Although it’s melting already, and by next week it’s supposed to be back up in the 60s. (Sigh.) 😦
