Tonight we are having what I call “heavy darkness.”
This is when it seems darker than it should be. This is usually brought on by foul weather. Currently we have a low ceiling with a deep cloud cover, combined with light precipitation. There is no light coming from the night sky and little to no errant light pollution from the nearby town and cities.
Even the headlights don’t seem to illuminate as well as they normally do.
I’ve used this new term as the opportunity to add a static Vocabulary page to the site. It’s currently in a rudimentary stage; given that it has just one entry – lol, and I want to make it easy to navigate. But, for now, click here to check it out. (Also, feel free to request additions or to contribute your own terminology.)
