Getting our hopes up

Our summer started out with cool weather and more-than-normal rainfall. But it soon got over that, and now it seems like maybe it’s never rained here. Ever. Not even a drop. And it’s hot, too – at or above 100 degrees for days at a time.

And that makes it seem like maybe this sign is being unnecessarily cruel.

(I am heading shortly to Chicago for a conference, where the high temperatures are forecast to be in the 70s. My work colleague and I had a discussion about packing; neither one of us can recall the right kind of clothes for that sort of weather.)

Sweet corn

“Did you bring back any corn?” – frequent question you get right after a late-summer visit to Nebraska.
