Here Comes Summer
It's the last day of February, and 73 degrees here, sunny and still.
This is the point in the year that always depresses me. Summer is barreling down on us, with its merciless heat, humidity, and bugs. Cool weather is gone for the next seven months -- maybe eight, thanks to climate change. Time to huddle inside, in the dim air conditioned habitat, moody and brooding and waiting for dusk before we leave the house.
Worse, it looks my summer classes won't make again, which means we'll be even broker than usual.
On the plus side, at least we're in a house with plenty of shade and good air conditioning. Also, I've found a little park near the new place, a walking trail that runs along the river. So I'll be able to get exercise this summer, at least.
