There's something wrong with the sky today

It's got a big yellow disk in it, that it hurts to look at

It's also a funny blue colour

And there's no water falling out of it

Something's wrong

Call the government, is this "Global Warming"?

It's just a hill. Get over it.

  • Same thing happened on my ride in this morning - luckily I had my phone with me so was able to take a picture.

    Anyone got any idea what this strange thing is?

    I recognise the wooden things, they are trees...but the yellow thing???

  • Possibly a fire somewhere? Really got me stumped this one. And the fluffy white things in the sky, normally they are wet but this morning were dry.

    Do you think its linked to the additional number of bikes out this morning somehow?

    Maybe the yellow thing is a signal to the bikes to come out

    As a 12 months a year type of commuter, more than once recently I've muttered the phrase "fairweather"!! :D

    That yellow thing's back again, am beginning to suspect it's a Russian spy satellite, they've heard about Scottish independence and are looking to move in to protect them from the "Fascist" national government...

    It's just a hole in the sky - it'll seal up soon and revert to the norm.

    I'm even more confused now. It's back and my thermometer appears to have TWO numbers on it now, what's all THAT about?

    They fixed it :( the sky went dark then turned wet, some of the wet bits may have been solid.
    I used to just ride my bike to work but now I find myself going out looking for bigger and bigger hills.
