Summer is Here


bc-summer-nixon-100611.jpgI am intrigued by these phenomena known as sunshine and cloud.  It has been so cloudly this spring that many people seem to have got out of the habit of going outside, even though the temperatures are - if not hot - at least seasonable.  The moment the sun pops through the clouds though, we all head outdoors.  Even when the temperatures are the same, a sunny 17 degrees seems much hotter than a cloudy 17.  I should ask Claire Martin why this is, but because it has been so cloudy recently, I fear I would start shouting at her.  I know she's only the messenger, like me, but I can't rid myself of the notion that it's all her fault.  Volleyball Net icon_video.gif
