The Devil's Mad At His Wife

For well over a week now it's hit 90+ degrees each and every bloody day.

I realize the folks down south might be laughing a wee bit at the revelation that this is awful weather for us Minnesotans, but, really, we're just not prepared for this sort of hot weather. Nor for it to last so long. Most people don't have air conditioners and if they do, well, in this neighborhood, they're the window variety. The heatwave started last Saturday---July, 9th. They said on the news on Friday night that we hadn't had this long of a heatwave since 1947. Today when I was chatting with Mr. H. he said they'd updated it: they had to go back to the dustbowl year of 1936 to find the last time we've suffered so.

Fortunately, it seems to be over with.

It's currently raining right now and I'm watching the temperature on the atomic clock/thermometer that hangs on the office wall go down, down, down. It was 99 in the shade earlier this afternoon, so this is a welcome relief. I can barely wait to open up the house. It will be so nice to finally have some fresh air blowing through.

Thank God!

As far as the title of this post is concerned, well, it may be raining, but it's also sunny outside. When I was a kid we used to say that whenever it rained and was sunny at the same time. Why, I don't know. I believe the theory went something to the effect that God was happy that the Devil was otherwise occupied, but I'm not sure if I'm goofing that.
