Weather's Wretched Excess Winding Down

As sunset approached I heard a woodpecker hammering on a tree down the block, but it has fallen silent now. The night is very still, and though the air has cooled it is not moving enough to send much of a breeze through my windows. I'm hoping a breeze will come up later, because the HVAC fan is insufficient to the task of cooling the house, and the turbine fans on the roof are not moving at all. I hate to think of how hot it must be in my attic right now, and regret the loss of the powered fan that once evacuated the heat from it.

The chiropractic adjustment this evening went well enough, but if I sleep as restlessly as I have recently (thanks, heat) my neck probably won't stay well adjusted for long. The next appointment is in four weeks, but earlier in the afternoon so my evening won't be truncated as this one has been.

The weather web site is saying that tomorrow is to be much cooler than today's 98 degrees or yesterday's 103. In fact the next ten days are to be more like normal June weather here, with highs in the 80s and lows in the low 60s or even the high 50s. I will enjoy that. A week from Thursday there could even be rain, though I don't put much stock in forecasts that far out. It would be nice to be able to skip some yard irrigation, though.

My very late lunch is starting to wear off, and I should go looking for something for dinner. It's late, but last night I didn't eat dinner until after midnight, so this is an improvement. Cooler weather ought to restore at least a bit of normality to my schedule. This has been a real devil's fart of a week, and I'm glad it's ending.
