Did you see this morning’s sunrise? Some of our WTHR viewers did, and David Lawrence grabbed his camera when he spotted the fiery red sky at dawn. He took this pic in the Traders Point area on 86th Street and Lafayette. What a stunning shot! By the way, this is a great time to throw in some old weather folklore: “Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky at morning, sailors take warning.” In this case, it’s true. The red sky was a result of high and mid level clouds moving in ahead of a weather system which will likely mean several days of wet weather here in Central Indiana! Great pic, David! I featured it as our Hoosier Pic on 13 Eyewitness News at 6 this evening.
Yesterday at 6, Chief Meteorologist Chris Wright featured Bill Beechler’s Hoosier Pic taken at the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s 100 Acres Park. Ironically, I went there yesterday afternoon too! (Probably walked right by Bill Beechler). And I concur, it was a fantastic photo-taking day at the park. My daughter couldn’t get enough of walking on “Funky Bones!”
And on Thanksgiving Day, Chris Wright gave props to a family affair! Three generations of Alfreds took to their bikes for a ride on the Monon and the Indianapolis Cultural Trail on Thanksgiving. We give thanks to Cheryl Alfred for sharing her pic! Hoosiers take family seriously, and Thursday was a great day to share with loved ones!
Wednesday was cloudy and foggy and cool, but at least the steady rain finally stopped. Here’s the Hoosier Pic Chris Wright shared with our viewers Wednesday at 6. You can see the high water on Brandywine Creek after Tuesday’s rain. Thanks to Yvonne Ballou for the pic!
As for the rain, in Andy Whitehurst’s Irvington rain gauge, the rain nearly reach .8″ Tuesday. Some areas like Kokomo to the north and Franklin to the south saw more than an inch. Either way, it was a dreary, damp, and miserable day and Andy’s pic told the weather story…Hoosier Pic style! Chris Wright featured his pic on WTHR at 6pm Tuesday.
Now that Thanksgiving is behind us and the holiday season officially in swing, I’d love to see some holiday light Hoosier Pics! You can also shoot pics of people, places, weather, or whatever!
All you need to do is post on our facebook wall: https://www.facebook.com/WTHR13 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure it’s a pic you took yesterday or today.
To check out the submissions yourself, you can view our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/WTHR13 and the photo gallery at wthr.com: http://iwitness.wthr.com/
Don’t forget to tell us your name and where the pic was taken along with any important details (i.e. at the Circle of Lights with my family). That way, we can credit you online and on-air!
By the way, looks like a soggy stretch of wet weather that could end as a bit of white weather by late Tuesday night/pre-dawn Wednesday. We’ll have to watch it! I’ll be doing so with camera in hand! Hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday and I’ll be looking for your Hoosier Pic submissions!
