Summer's only been gone for about a week and this is our 1st full weekend of Fall. Temperatures have fallen a lot. It has barely gotten higher than 11°c all weekend with lows around 7°c. I head into the sun each way on my commute to work so I can't ride, as I am blinded by the sun
Vancouver is built around hills and you cannot avoid them. Here is a particularly bad section for me as the sun is right at road level as you approach the top. Your sun visor is of no use at this angle. You are in the shadow of the dip in the road and then you are blinded as you near the top. Luckily we don't get that many sunny days during the Winter. It has been raining nearly every day since last week and this is just the lull before another storm makes it's way here
I stop to snap a photo of these dark clouds. I have the same problem on my way home with the low setting sun on my evening commute. I am stuck in heavy traffic and it is hard to see. It's only 6:38 pm and I still haven't made it home
Our worst day of the weekend was forecast to be Saturday. It started raining late Friday night with rain expected every day until next Wednesday
I had some errands to do and when it rains, our traffic slows down to a crawl. The sun managed to make a short appearance around sunset but I was too late to get a good vantage point
I just missed the reflected glow off the buildings by mere minutes . . .
the buildings now look cold and lifeless as the light slowly ebbs away
and the dark clouds only forshadow what was to be . . .
The rain came down so hard it was like being under a waterfall. We had so much water our city drains could not handle the downpour so there was pooling water everywhere with minor flooding. The winds caused power outages all over town
And this is only our first weekend of our new Fall season
