We have had a couple weeks straight of some of the very worst of Midwestern summer weather. Stretches of high heat coupled with humidity making it feel like 100+ degrees for days on end. Then this last week we finally got some much needed rain. Boy did we. The town of Leo-Cedarville is pretty close to us and they got drenched.
What A Difference A Day Makes
Not quite that much at my place but we got a lot of rain. That was followed by yesterday which was overcast and humid as all get out, that lovely Midwestern combo of dreary and not very warm mixed with high humidity.
It is nearly perfect. At 12:30 the temperature is a lovely 74 degrees with a great breeze and not a cloud in the searingly blue sky. Spent a little time reading in the hammock before coming in for some lunch and it was very nice. We have the windows open and that makes me happy, I despise being in a closed up house with the air conditioning going. It is better than being in super high temps but I really don’t like the artificial feel of the a/c. I am not a hot weather kind of guy which is the biggest reason we don’t live in the south, the enormous bugs and fauna that can kill you being the other big deterrent.
It reminds me of how little we ask for, just the ability to enjoy days like this puttering around outside on a Saturday, maybe swinging in the hammock for a quick snooze. It is so little to ask and expect but even that is too much. A moment of happiness and contentment is a grave insult to Them.
Anyway, I’ll enjoy today and it is supposed to be just as nice tomorrow. They can’t take that away from us, at least not yet.
