Lightday is the single clear day in the middle of the Weeping, which consists of four weeks of continuous rain and signifies the Rosharan New Year.[1][2][3] Every other year a highstorm arrives on Lightday, but it is otherwise free of storms. The years without the highstorm are known as Light Years.[4]

"In the rain? Couldn't he have waited for Lightday?"


As to who 'he' is, Kaladin is referring to Roshone, who will put in an appearance at a full town meeting.[1]
