What a Difference a Day Makes

The smoke in the atmosphere is currently so thick it almost blocks out the sun. At times today I've been able to look out the window directly at the sun without squinting—it's just a disc up there, not so bright. What little sunlight is getting through is orange; the light coming through the window and making patterns on the office floor today looks as if it were cast by the sodium lights on the building next door rather than by the sun.

Despite this the temperature outside is actually quite pleasant. Sort of a shame, really… but then, I'm not so upset about being cooped up in an office today given that it's to do anything outside.
