webcams and daylight cues

One big change with my new desk at work is that I don’t have a direct
line of sight to outside anymore. (I can sort of tell if it’s light or
dark out via my monitor mirror or the general office lighting, but I
miss subtleties that way.)

To fix this, I’ve got gkrellm running with its webcam module, and
two webcams, one big one of Parliament
downtown and another little traffic cam of March
very close to the office, that I can use to determine if the
sun is starting to set, or if it is clouding over, or snowing, and so

I’m not sure if this is resourceful or sad or both.
