marianne just wrote about this, the weather has changed. she thinks it's still much too hot, but i am sad. nearly every day this month has had a thunderstorm, and the wind has changed. instead of hot air blowing through the house, the wind is actually cool. the noisy hot weather cicadas have silenced. it's only august 21st! (happy birthday mom) where is summer? why did it leave so early? i cannot handle autumn, i hate it. *sob* such a short summer, too, it didn't really begin until the middle of july. rainy season was humid and miserable (buy hey, i haven't seen any susumebatchi yet) and i did use the air conditioner a lot, but *sigh* i am not ready to let go of summer.
