There's an unusually strong breeze, and, even more unusual, it's cool.  When it drops, the temperature feels only a little lower than normal.  There's a strong charge of electricity in the air.  Some emergency cropping is being done on a tree in the carpark.  But Jing'an's a place with a lot of trees, all heavily in leaf.  It might be my imagination, but there was more eye contact and cheeriness when we went out for lunch and then shopping just now.  We've got plenty of stuff in, especially water, porridge, eggs, noodles.
