Frozen sunrise

Ever seen a frozen sunrise? Sure you have, you've just never heard it called that! The Memphis area got to experience a gorgeous frozen sunrise this morning as high clouds (between 10,000-15,000 feet) wafted over the area on a strong westerly jet stream as the sun rose in the eastern sky. Temps were in the upper 20s - making it a frozen sunrise! I'm a fan of gorgeous sunrises and sunsets (see my MemphisWeather.net Photo Gallery for proof) and this morning's did not disappoint. It's just further proof that someone much greater than any of us is in charge. I would have missed it if it weren't for the orange glow coming through the east-facing windows, even with the blinds closed. The clouds were present over the entire region this morning - anyone else catch a glimpse?
