Endless Cloudy Days

We have had so many cloudy days lately. They just all blend in together. Yesterday, Jan 26th, Gary and I were going on a Starbuck’s run and as we walked to the car, I noticed the sun was peeking out more than it had all day! It was so nice to see it, even if the sun was just about to go down. I’m not sure when we are going to see the sun again all day. It wasn’t today, though.
