More than one shade of grey might better so you can trace out previous years more easily.

The most interesting thing I took away from this chart is that thhe curves previous recessions are pretty symmetric, with the minimum being within a month or two of the centre. (On closer look: recovery is the slightly quicker part). This would imply the rcession will be shorter than that after 2001.
