No rain, after all, and the clouds have vanished in the night. Still, the air smells wet, and there is enough moisture to make a bright yellow haze around the fading moon. The valley is expecting clouds today, but here in the mountains it is often sunny even when the valley is cloaked in fog. It will be hot, either way. Getting toward summer, and the days will soon bear down on drying fields and the nights will be filled with the constant sound of insects. I will dream of these cool nights, then. I will enjoy them while I can.
Not only does LJ seem very slow today, but the news page has no entries on it at all. There's nothing but those links to other community journals at the top of the page. I wonder if Brad has retired without telling us? According to opiummmm's post at LJ Status, it is just high traffic that is causing the problems. Everybody posting about their weekend, I suppose. Well, it's too hot to be sitting in front of Sluggo (with the smell of brimstone arrising from his evil digital innards) anyway. I will go out and sit in the yard with my cats, and watch the thin clouds drifting across the bright evening sky.
