Walking to school this morning I was greeted by the most striking sun dogs I've ever seen. Some people believe sun dogs mean that there will be a change of weather. I'm not sure about that, as I can't say that I've ever noticed that. I found an interesting article on the Weather Phenomenon and Elements website. It has a scientific explanation of what sun dogs are. This sentence in the article caught my eye: "Sun dogs are sometimes so brilliant that dazzled observers mistake them for the sun." This is what today's sun dogs looked like here in Manitoba - like there were three suns rising in the east.
Update! One hour after I first posted the sun dog picture:
Maybe there's something to this change of weather theory after all. (: We're having a good old Manitoba snow storm now.
