How About Some Weather Magic?
What's wrong with this picture?
I'll tell you what's wrong. We live in the Midwest, not on the equator.
Today's temperature surpassed 107 degrees, and it's not looking much better in the days ahead. Sure wish we could get below triple digits. Funny, who'd ever think "only 99" would be a good thing?
The grass is brown. The flowers are fading and limp. We haven't had rain in a long time. No hope of it on the horizon anytime soon either.
Do you remember the film, The Rainmaker? Burt Lancaster turned a doubting Katherine Hepburn into a believer and helped her understand that having a dream is a wonderful thing. We could use that kind of magic...along with a rumble or two of thunder.
In the absence of our own personal Starbuck, both critters and peeps are staying inside in the a/c. And that's the way it should be. We certainly don't want to have any tragedies like this:
Stay home. Stay cool. Stay safe.
