You know the old adage: Red sky in morning, sailors take warning. Well, Instagrammers aren’t exactly taking warning, but they are taking photos. Lots of them.

Bostonians were posting photos left and right of the breathtaking sunrise over the city this morning.

From Southie to Mission Hill to Cambridge, folks in just about every corner of the city had a sunrise picture to share.

Not to kill the mood, but there is an explanation for the “red sky in the morning” saying. These kinds of sunrises mean rain is coming, which is exactly what Boston has in store for the next few days. So enjoy the pretty, clear skies while you can.
