Two weeks ago, I offered what I thought was a pretty picture of the sun getting ready to wake up at 5:51 a.m., outside the store before my opening shift started exactly nine minutes later.
Yesterday I thought the view to the east was even more breath-taking.
Yes, it was again 5:51 a.m.
A lot can happen in two weeks during April, though, when you’re talking gaining minutes of daylight. This time, that yellow ball had come much closer to the horizon, bringing an array of color with it. The charts tell me official Syracuse sunrise was 6:02 a.m. Today it will be 6 a.m. sharp.
For good measure, I took a shot of the moon high over the store, still not ready to call it a night as I prepared to start my eight hours of paint department toil, plus one for lunch.
What were you doing at 5:51 a.m. yesterday, more akin to rising with the sun or setting with the moon? What’s your plans for today and this weekend? When is the next time you plan to see the sun rise?
