Blue Skies

February 10, 2012

I recently wrote a column for the Star wherein I noted the mixed feelings with which locals have been greeting this unusually warm winter weather.  It seems that blue skies in January and abundant sunshine in February are viewed as signs of impending doom — more than one neighbor wondered aloud whether the plague of locusts was imminent.  You will be happy to know that I took immediate action:  I washed and waxed my car, ran my sprinklers, raised my market umbrella, and placed a favorite cushion on the lounger outside.  As a result, the rain and cold weather have returned.  You’re welcome, St. Helena!
