The weather this month has been amazingly, well, temperate. There was a bit of mugginess in the air this afternoon, but nothing that was even remotely oppressive. It was actually cooler outside this afternoon than it was indoors. And the cloud cover rolled in later in the day, with the nightfall taking on a signs-of-a-thunderstorm cast. There is something very pleasant about an August night when the fireflies are thick and the dusk is rising and the possibility of a summer storm lurks. It’s my kind of summer.
