I got in to work (near the top of the second-tallest building in town) in time to watch the early-morning sun across the lake, where the sun climbed and then broke through the clouds, sending brilliant sunbeams down through the single opening to sparkle on the water. The mountains looked like they'd been traced in gold.
It was beautiful.
Of course, since I got serenaded by a rooster on the way to work again, it was also way too early!!
...and it looks like I am the only member of my department in today, which means I will probably just go home in another hour or so.
