It’s still hot as the blazes here in Kansas. Spending July traveling to rainy, cooler places has really made me want to pick up and move away from here as soon as possible.
Our soil has long since cracked open and started to blow around as loose dust whenever the wind picks up. I hear the actual dustbowl was much worse and really did include giant dust storms like those I imagine on Mars. So we are by no means there yet. Although, is comparing today to the absolute worst conditions on record really much to feel grateful about?
A look into the crystal ball:
The weather say that we are in for a break in the heat sometime in the next few days. With some luck it’ll get down to the low to mid 90s (and even one day predicted to be 89 degrees!) Unfortunately, the cooler conditions don’t appear to be bringing rain with them.
So, if you are getting rain – go out and take some pleasure in it. Let it soak into your skin and drip down your face. Splash in the puddles and sing in the rain. It’s the stuff of life!
