We’re on the fourth day or so of another stretch of hot-and-humid here in the city; the kind of day that saps you of the ambition to do much of anything except for laze around the house, poking through books for a few pages and then losing your train of thought.
I did rally for a little bit of housecleaning today, though, and then decided to treat myself to an iced coffee up the street. And when I went outside, I felt there was a gathering breeze and a bank of clouds forming – and some of them were even starting to go gray on the bottom. Always a good sign; the rain could bring some relief by wringing some of the humidity out of the air.
But by the time I finished at the coffee shop and was heading home again the clouds were already starting to melt away.
