summer already?

April 24th, 2008

It’s been seeming for a couple of weeks already that we’ve already entered summer weather patterns- but mercifully without the heat. Yet. I mean, long periods of murky humidity getting thicker and more choking with each day, followed by rain or wind to clear the place out for a day or two. And then just as I got home the sky started growing dark. Ominously, threateningly dark, like just before a summer storm. Then I smelled spring rain- spring rain is alright, but not the pounding summer rain.

It has started to rain now, lightly, but the sky is still dark and ominous, the breeze is picking up, and it feels like a summer storm really is on the way. Bit early for all that, but I’ve been suspecting for a long time now that we’re in for a long, hot, stormy summer this year.

    Nick: Yeah, we’ve had a good run with the weather, really, the rain and wind have kept things fairly clean. And it is a great city, indeed.
