Well, today was actually quite horrendous, reaching a high of 109 degrees. Yes, that's one hundred and nine. Tomorrow is expected to be slightly less horrendous at 102, and after that it's supposed to drop into the balmy nineties for a few days. But the nights are supposed to get down into the sixties, so at least there will be a brief nocturnal respite. If this is what we get at the beginning of June, I hate to think what July might bring.
The crickets are delighted, of course, and chirping madly. But their song is periodically almost drowned out by the humming air conditioners of the neighbors. Those people must be made of money. I'm not, so I'll just try to enjoy the night as it is, as the crickets do.
