Our hot spell seems to have broken for the time being. Mornings, late afternoons, and nights are cool and refreshing and this means we get some thick morning fogs. Gone by 8 a.m. or even before, they are nevertheless a harbinger of completely non-political Change— which is refreshing. It's the same kind of advance warning we get every year at about this time in August. We've still got plenty of hot weather to go in August and September, but we always seem to get these false autumns about this time of year.
