A quick look at the calendar tells me that the days are getting longer, but my experience over the past week made me doubt science. Every day, getting on and off the bus was really just strolling in darkness. I know it was just the grey winter sky, but it really wasn’t particularly pleasing.
Friday, perhaps fortunate that my students had no desire to hang around and ask me questions, I exited the building quickly and caught the earlier bus. Though the bus driver was no Formula One ace on loan to York Region Transit, I managed to make it home early and was greeted by a pleasantly bright sky. I finally felt like the days were getting longer.
