Finally, a break in the weather. Clouds disintegrated and sunshine reached through their tattered remains to melt the snow that fell Christmas Eve. I took the Warrior aloft for mutual exercise; a nice, if routine, flight.
Returning home above a 3,000 foot haze layer, I watched the sun descend through the misty surface, seeming to ignite the false horizon. As we inched closer to home against a monstrous westerly headwind, the sun appeared submerged in the vapor, its rays shifted crimson when viewed through the thickened lower atmosphere.
A fitting way to close out an eventful year of flying, I think.
