Just Like Mississippi … Without the “Benefits”

I’m sitting outside reading this morning. A big, rainy system has just passed through (complete with a hard breakfast rain and occasional thunder). But that is all past and everything is April/May green (it’s been a rainy July!) and the humidity is heavy enough to reveal itself as a light fog. It is both very beautiful and a bit eerie.

I can even imagine that the great line of white pine trees that hedge us into this neighborhood might be Cyprus rising majestically out of the swamp. The only thing missing is the Spanish moss hanging from the trees …

… oh, and the fact that the temperature is desperately trying to hang on to 70° instead moving steadily past 90° …

… oh yeah, and there is a decided lack of water moccasins and alligators.
