Above the clouds, (pilots can verify this if you know any) there is a bright light; it may appear to be within reach, but rest assured that it is actually some distance away in space. This object (hereafter referred to simply as the sun) is the cause of the grey light that has occurred each morning; this wan, lifeless ‘light’ is the result of the sun’s rays being diffused through the clouds and is not typical of ‘daytime’ lighting (unless you live in Seattle or Scotland). The sun is a source of warmth and brightness; indeed it is so bright that it is not a good idea to look directly at it for any length of time. Probably somewhere in your house there are other objects called ‘sunglasses’ that are meant to shield your eyes from the bright sunlight; you will need to find them before tomorrow.
Meteorologists have recently predicted that the grey covering of clouds will dissipate tomorrow enabling the sun to shine directly upon us. This ‘sunlight’ is actually beneficial unless you spend too much time exposed to it. In some places (not Seattle or Scotland) you can experience what medical science calls a ‘sunburn’ with prolonged exposure to sunlight, but this time of year in the Triangle area of North Carolina, this is probably not a concern. To satisfy the legal department I hereby deny any responsibility for anyone who intentionally exposes their skin to sunlight for an extended period of time to ascertain if this ‘sunburn’ is purely a myth. You have been warned!
When the sun appears tomorrow, please do not panic; it is not Armageddon, but only the dawning of a new day. Enjoy the sun and remember to wear your sunglasses.
