- The weather around these parts has been hideous lately. It’s all rain and all gloom, all the time. We’ve all begun to wear the mood like heavy psychic curtains.
It seems that every year we get a stretch like this, and makes me feel as though I were living in Ray Bradbury’s short story, “All Summer in a Day.” It’s about a young girl from Earth who goes to live on Venus, where it rains all the time except for one day a year, when it’s sunny for the span of just a few hours. Hilarity does not ensue.
