Birmingham has grown these last few years. The metropolitan area is now over a million people and city lights pervade the skies of surrounding communities for miles, but we live far enough to the north and west and the miles consume the illumination, so it's dark here at night.
On cloudless nights when the moon is new, the sky looks like blue velvet with a field of diamonds scattered as far as the eye can see.
But tonight when I stepped out on the deck to get a feel for the weather, the 3/4 moon was as bright as a halogen lamp. The moon will be full on our anniversary early next week.
I hope you have a great Friday.
