The Summer That Never Was

It was bound to happen eventually. The summer that never was. We were long overdue for it. As I type this we are in the middle of a northeast gale.

We have had a few nice days but they have been few and far between. In two and a half months summer will be over. Hopefully we can salvage September. I guess the only good news is that our winters have been nice and hot the past few. I snuck down to the waterfront late this afternoon to take a look at the storm-
