Mostly Sunny Thursday

Mornin'!  It's 38° in Wildwood NJ.  We're kicking off Thursday with clear, sunny skies as Ms Sun rose almost an hour ago.  Breezes are relatively light out of the NW at 5-10mph.  There's a very light wind chill: 34°.  It'll be a sunny to partly sunny day with a high of 47° and those NW winds kicking up at 15-25mph +gusting.  Why not?  Tonight... clear, low of 27° and NW winds still kicking at 15-25mph +gusting.  Tomorrow... sunny and colder (high of 39°) and windier... NW at 20-30mph +gusting.  Saturday and Sunday... looking clear and cold (temps in the mid-upper 30s) and not as windy.  It actually looks like the first weekend in March won't be blustery.  I wonder why?  So, last night as I was putting some trash in the can outside, I happen to look at the twilight sky down my street and lo and behold... there's a pink cloud just standing alone in the twilight sky.  It waited until I could go in the house and grab a camera and take some shots of it and then post it on my Instagram account.  I didn't hear anything until this morning that it was vapor from a rocket launch on Wallops Island VA for the defense department.  Thus, today's blog photo.  It was a bit unsettling to watch as it eventually vaporized into the night sky.
