My Annual “I’m Awake For a Sunrise” Picture

Here you go.

You can thank the dryer repairman for this, since I had to be awake, out of bed and dressed when he arrived, which was five minutes ago. Otherwise, man, I would so very be asleep right now.

Beautiful. I’m looking at clouds outside my window and contemplating the fact that there is no school, so my beautiful wife and wonderful sons can sleep in while I get to go to work.

Nice sunrise, though.

I now have two “awake for a sunrise” days: Thanksgiving and Christmas, when I trek home on the NJ Turnpike before dawn because I don’t want to deal with traffic. Sunrise usually occurs for me over Bayonne.

At this time of year, I’m out the door before the sun rises, and I get home long after it sets. I’ve seen some beautiful sunrises over the years, but I’d still rather be in bed.

@#13 – Truer words… I’m still up, but that’s my normal routine. I write at night, when the house is quiet and even the cats leave me alone. I go to bed for a few hours after seeing to the rest of the household, in the morning. I quite like listening to some NPR and getting everyone breakfast while the kitchen brightens. It’s a nice way to reconnect after 8 or 10 hours with the computer.

Heinlein doesn’t like small minded petty people. At least, that is what I always got.

BTW, If my sunrise looked like yours, I might be up for it also. As it is, my kids let me sleep when the sun comes up. They have deigned it my “nap” time. I love my kids.

I see the sun rise every day, at least this time of year. Of course, being in Edmonton it doesn’t rise until 8am — and on the 21st it won’t rise until almost 9. And it sets around 4:30-5:00pm.

Makes me wish my office had windows…

(Full-spectrum lamps are a beautiful thing. I’m surprised they aren’t more common around here.)

I assume that the pets stayed snuggled in bed. (Probably muttering comments about- ‘now that he’s gone, I get the pillow)This morning, my large dog waited to jump down from her couch-bed until i had showered, dressed, and fed cats. The small very old dog waited until the large dog had come back in the house. She got up, grabbed her cookie, and immediately went back to bed.

I stole the pic for my desktop also. I was getting tired of the colliding galaxy pic from the Hubble anyway. Mostly clear and cold in the midwest makes for good pictures.

Pixelfish @ 26 How are you doing with the snow and ice here in the greater Seattle area? I was thinking you live on one of the hills that gets nasty in times like these.
It hasn’t been too bad in the north county area but then again I grew up in the high plains. (Quite a lot like where you grew up.)

And then there is broadcast transmitter repair. A quick whiff of air as the door is opened tells a tale of relentless permanent press cycles plus a lint filter in need of cleaning.
This must be done as revenue sleeps because when tread meets road all broadcasts are for keeps.

Y’a know, it’s kinda cheating to take a sunrise photo in the winter. After all, sunrise is so late then. A late June sunrise photo would gain you more karma credits! – An early riser.
