After a relentless heat wave for the past week or so, this morning gave us temperatures in the 60s with lower humidity. Maybe it's another sign of approaching autumn, and even though I know August isn't yet prepared to surrender, one can still be hopeful. Temperatures are forecast for the low 80s for this afternoon, which actually seems cool after ten days of tropical weather.
Now that blogger.com has released my Columbia blogs from captivity, I suppose I'm finally free to lay them out as I see fit: one for history and general information; one for past, present, and future events; one for my more serious comments; and one for the dark side.
I understand the concern about spam, but this ain't it.
It's early August, and even though summer hasn't gasped its last, the seeds of autumn are apparent in the lengthening shadows and waning daylight. Soon, the cicadas - or locusts as we incorrectly call them here - will sing their lament, heralding the imminent end of the season.
