Saturday, June 26, 2021 (In 27 days, July’s fullest moon [“Thunder”] will rise.)
This is a brief hello. As of today my local area will welcome a string of 100-deg-plus days. Intensive heat makes working with horses uncomfortable for them and for me. This morning I plan to hurry outside while temps are reasonable to feed and exercise.
Already, our weather has been unusually hot and unpredictable. There’s been very high heat with dry-thundering electrical storms. A couple of days ago for an hour, a driving storm of large hail literally brought this area to its knees.
Odd weather patterns are occurring everywhere. Nobody alone is facng the current unyielding heat and dryness.
These patterns force us worry ahead. About remaining well, and surviving miserable weather. About preventing wildfires from popping up and spreading. About maintaining human connections during unusual social times. About a new awareness, of an inhabited large building suddenly collapsing.
Dear Friends: Take things slowly, stay cool, be safe, and when possible assist others. Diana
