Blah, it’s hot.

The Tall Man is indignant about the lack of rainfall. Even the sprinkle we got on Saturday morning annoyed him.

“It was only two-tenths of an inch,” he said, as though Mother Nature had gone out of her way to insult him personally.

The southeastern part of Wisconsin in listed on the drought monitor as “abnormally dry.”

I, too, wish it would rain. The general rule of newspaper life is, “As soon as you write about how dry it’s been, it will start raining and not stop until you’ve been assigned the flooding story.”

We’re running an “it’s been dry” story on Tuesday, so maybe it will start raining.
