Did anyone notice the Oregon Mandarin skies yesterday that eventually turned grape purple? It was wild and it frightened our cat and she does not frighten that easily either. She stayed hidden during the time of the event. The sky went from Grey to Orange in a split second after a flash which was not lightening or thunder. No sound was heard. and it was raining very hard. It was wild and spooky, but beautiful too. It was not part of the sky that turned orange it was the whole sky. I called my husband in Eugene who was on his way home. He was driving toward Cottage Grove and thought it was quite strange. It was not a sunset orange. I looked down at my purple dress it looked red standing outside under this sky even the air looked orange. It was wild!! I took pictures. Even the air looks orange and the raindrops appeared to be rust in color.
