Skywatch Friday: Fallen Sun
Here in Connecticut there is no sky. No, indeed. The sky has been replaced with a very low, very grey ceiling that admits no light. Every minute of the day looks like 4 o'clock on a late December afternoon.
It's not a bad thing. It's just winter. January and, now, early February have a way of impersonating December so that you hardly notice the days really are getting longer. It is a trick of the light, to be sure. When the snow stops falling and the days grow warmer, the light will seem so bright and intense that--well. We will very likely sing for joy.
Here is a picture of the December light illuminating a walkway in Surf City, North Carolina, and nothing else.
