Here comes August
LILEKS (James) The Bleat: "July has been superb. It's accomplished the one mission July has: making you so miserably sick of hot weather you yearn for the relief of September. Heard the first cicada today, and this time I knew it was the first. Stopped and smiled: the harbingers of August, drilling through the heavy air. Welcome back."

Yesterday and today I spent on a boat in Stamford, in 90 degree heat, sweating like crazy, looking forward to September. And yesterday (that's wednesday) I heard my first cicada of the season, and had the same feeling of joy that Lileks describes. He and I are on the same page.
