What a lot of weather we are having! The floods and stormy seas still dominate the national headlines and news stories, and yet on Sunday morning (January 5) there was a gorgeous sunrise.

Another Guildford Dragon NEWS reader, David Howell has sent in his photo taken on his phone to join Shirley West’s earlier picture below. Looks like those of us still akip missed quite a show.

The sunrise photo that Shirley West took of the sunrise on the 5th January 2014 is very pretty and as I sat on my sofa about 7.30am I felt I had to take the attached photo [above]. Sorry, only had my phone available, but what a sight.”

This photo was taken by Shirley West at her home off Broadacres in Rydes Hill, Guildford.

Anyone up and about early will have noticed that there was a frost too. By Sunday evening that had all changed and the rain was again pouring down, with even a bright flash of lightning and a clap of thunder at one point.

There’s nothing like the weather (and pictures of it) to keep people talking! Thank you to Shirley and David for sending them in.

We love to get photos of news incidents or beautiful local scenes such as these. When you get such good or interesting pictures it really is good to share. Please remember The Dragon when you are out and about. With so many phones also having camera functions, these days, everyone can be a news photographer. Ed

    Red sky at night, shepherd’s delight.
    Red sky at morning, shepherd take warning.

    There are other variations of the wording. The rhyme is a rule of thumb for weather forecasting, dating back over 2,000 years, based on the reddish glow of the morning or evening sky, caused by haze or clouds related to storms in the region. Due to the rotation of the Earth, storm systems travel from west to east in the mid-latitudes. A reddish sunrise, caused by particles suspended in the air, often foreshadows an approaching storm, which will be arriving from the West, within the day.

    Many a true word!
