This Is a SAD Weather Day

"And then depression set in"
- John Winger, Stripes

If you are trying to avoid Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), today's weather is not for you.  It's about as grey and drab as it can get.  Our camera peering at the Wasatch Range from the University of Utah upper campus shows thick cirrostratus clouds, but further adding to the darkness is the valley smog/haze, evident on the right side of the photo.

Here's a view looking at the Wasatch Range from the west showing the nicely layered atmosphere with the valley smog and cirrostratus deck separated by a clear layer aloft.  I guess the place to be today is somewhere in that clear layer.

  1. I think the place to be today is actually the San Juan mountains of Colorado.
