My commute begins at 5:50am, and, on the average post-daylight savings time day, begins right before or shortly after the sun goes down. This means that yesterday, as I pulled onto the road to head to the office at the more-reasonable time of 10:30am, I briefly had the following thought:
"why is it so bright out right now?"
"Oh, right. It's that whole 'middle of the day' thing."
