Ah, September! We’ve been waiting for you. Soon it will be a beautiful day in the neighborhood. A brutal heat wave has had us in its grip for the past six weeks. Temperatures have been over 100 degrees with zero precipitation. Our rain total thus far for 2020 is 8 inches. In a dry year, we average 12 inches. The intensity of the heat makes you think about cool, green days, and you begin to take stock of things. It helps to sort the current situation into the good, the bad, and the ugly. I’ll save the good for last.
