A purple sky, then the rain

A purple sky, then the rain

Dawn breaks over Rough Creek Park Wednesday — turning the sky a muted purple. The rain came an hour later just as Cooper Mangold and his year-old Australian Sheepdog Ziva left the park. Cooper, who builds metal buildings in Granbury, said he takes advantage of the impending weather to take his dog to the park. He said he comes to the park “every once in a while when I’m not working and it’s fixing to rain. When it’s fixing to rain we’re not working.” He goes to Rough Creek Park because, he said, “I have to come to town for breakfast anyway.” The National Weather Service is forecasting cooler temperatures into the new week, with a high of 84 Tuesday.
