The illusion of light
Yesterday it felt like springtime, because there was some decent light after an extended dull grey period.
Today, that’s gone. It still looks as if it’ll be bright: there’s a heavy mist in the valley, but the moon (a tiny sliver of crescent) is bright and clear above it. But, reverting to seasonal norm, it’s such a long wait:-(
It’s still absurdly warm, with temperatures more like October than December. In any normal year we’d get our first daytime frost sometime in November. This year we haven’t even had a night frost yet.
