Summer's coming

Last night may have been the first night of a summer that came a little too early to Tucson. Even with the windows open and the fan on, it never quite cooled down; indeed, it stayed warm outside all night, and was over 70 F when we woke up this morning. Perhaps that explains why we’re both a little grumpy and out-of-sorts today.

Fortunately, our new little house has a sleek, quiet, superhero-style swamp cooler, the MasterCool II. If summer is really here, we’re ready.

Still, I hope it’s not summer already.
