Give Me a Break
You know it has been a long hot summer when your county is designated by the weather folks to be in a severe drought as our county was during the month of July. The lawns have gone brown, the tulip trees are shedding leaves that fall like big yellow butterflies and they have being doing that for weeks. The chickadees and titmice fight over the bird bath, and I only go outside in the early morning or late afternoon to survey my room without walls.
But you really understand that concept of a long hot summer when the evening arrives and it looks like this and you get excited! And yes, it was followed by the most cooling rain.
