So foul and fair a day I have not seen...

Strange weather in Jammu recently.
The day turned dark. Afternoon was night. Had to turn on all the lights to see anything. Plus it was muggy, a bizarre reddish sky was playing to the soundtrack of distant thunder and strong winds.

Very Macbeth, I thought. Relevant excerpts showcasing my C&P skills:

The night has been unruly: where we lay,
Our chimneys were blown down; and, as they say,
Lamentings heard i' the air; strange screams of death,
And prophesying with accents terrible
Of dire combustion and confused events
New hatch'd to the woeful time: the obscure bird
Clamour'd the livelong night: some say, the earth
Was feverous and did shake.

SCENE IV. Outside Macbeth's castle.

Ah, good father,
Thou seest, the heavens, as troubled with man's act,
Threaten his bloody stage: by the clock, 'tis day,
And yet dark night strangles the travelling lamp:
Is't night's predominance, or the day's shame,
That darkness does the face of earth entomb,
When living light should kiss it?
Yes. Shakespeare was quite nuts.
