At precisely 11:14 in the morning the sun was sighted over my library. One of my co-workers announced it to the back workroom and we all immediately ran to the window.
Due to the angles and general haze and cloudiness we couldn't quite see where the sun was, but it was definitely different. Two people walking by appeared to be illuminated. Direct light was shining on them.
"What color was the sun again?" One of us asked.
Several colors like green and blue were suggested and it was all very funny. Then we fell silent. It really had been a long time since anyone had seen the sun. A librarian walked by.
"The sun came out!" One of us exclaimed.
"Oh please." She said dismissively. I guess it wasn't out anymore. She was not keen to countenance some brief, muddy, and incomplete glimpse.
"The sun was yellow." One of us said softly.
I don't know if it was a joke or not.
