Mercury Rising

Dusk brought the crickets out, but there still aren't as many as we usually have by this time in a normal spring. I don't know what happened to them. Maybe that late rain drowned them. But those who are here are enjoying a pleasant evening. It got hotter than predicted today, nosing up into the low 90s.

I kept the house closed up all day, but will probably have the windows open all night tonight, as it's supposed to get down to 63 but will probably be a bit warmer, and it's still about 74 in the house. I'll need that accumulated cool night air tomorrow, even though the high is predicted to be only 75. I'm betting it will get into the 80s.

The moon is full tonight, and I want to go out and watch it for a while, and listen to those few crickets. The feral cats will be glad of my company. They kept themselves hidden most of the day, probably tucked away in the shadiest spots they could find. Tonight I expect they'll be out chasing bugs. It's definitely bug season. I have had to swat a small moth away from my monitor several times. Another reason to wrap the computering up and go out to see that moon.
