Weather (As Good a Topic as Any)

May 24 and the weather today alternated between overcast, drizzly, and chilly, with a few moments of interspersed sunlight. It’s been this way all month, except for a few days earlier in the month when summery weather was threatening to bust out. Even I am somewhat surprised by this spate of what the cliché calls “unseasonable” weather. It should be over soon, I keep thinking, but then I look at the NOAA weather forecast page (which has not yet been gutted by Rick Santorum) and there are lines of thunderstroms predcited all through Saturday night. Having not lived through enough Michigan years to know, I wonder if this means that the summer, when it comes, will be a humdinger?
