Changing

This evening I watched the gray sky turn silver over the green world, then fade into night. It seemed to take a long time, but that was an illusion induced by the serenity. Evenings are a bit longer than they were in winter, but they never really last long. The rain really didn't last long, either. I never heard it begin last night, even though I was awake until nearly three o'clock, and then it ended not long after noon, only a couple of hours after I woke up. It's always possible that today's was the last rain we'll get for a long time— at least for what will seem like a long time, until it's over.

I'm already starting to worry about the heat that's due next week. The estimated highs in the forecasts keep going up. Wednesday is now predicted to reach 86. I fear that by the time Wednesday actually gets here it might be 90. This is much too soon for such summery heat. May should be balmy, not torrid. I guess I'll have to lay in a supply of cold drinks when I shop this week. Tonight is more like hot chocolate weather. I think I'll make some, just in case next week it's too late until fall.
