Northwestern Orb

Northwestern Orb

Another pleasant storm-observing day came to a brilliantly colored close, this time over the fertile flatlands of northeastern North Dakota. This high in latitude, the sun sets well northward in the western sky and late in the day, such that we were fortunate to find available lodging in Grafton (and only fast food for dinner) soon thereafter. Meanwhile, storms located just over the Minnesota line reflected the reddening rays of that northwestern orb.
