So the power was off for about four hours today while they did maintenance. The first chilly day in a week, and the furnace wouldn't work. The weather has slipped back from April to March. Maybe by tomorrow it will be February again. The cricket was silent tonight, but a few frogs were croaking for a while. Now there are clouds gathering. The moon rises behind them and makes their edges glow. The glowing clouds arrange themselves in such a way that they silhouette one of the bare oaks and make it look as though it is sporting new foliage of pale light. One patch of cloud disintegrates into small puffs, and resembles white blossoms floating away on dark water. I anticipate a night of chill splendor.
