A sunny, Sunday afternoon from my front yard in Sandy, UT. Just a heap of images unified by a gladdening hint of sunshine (for the next few days at least) and a possible infusion of Vitamin D. The Weather Channel describes the day as "Lot's of sunshine, temperatures in the high 40s." Then "snow ...
