Pink Sunrise over Grandfather Mountain

Did the Fiery Sunrise over Grandfather Mountain Predict our Heavy Snow?

Jim Morton, longtime photographer for the Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation, captured this stunning photo on the morning of January 21, 2016, just ahead of a heavy snow forecast for the High Country and much of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The photo was captioned, “This morning’s reddish sunrise above Grandfather Mountain advised sailors to take warning.”
